Default Tips on finding pool space for lessons

In Australia many of our schools have pools. We (www.swimwell.com.au) have access to a College pool on Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons. We work as closely as we can with the school offering free TI Freestlye courses as prizes on School community day etc. We are also keen to work closely with the parents association and offer discount group sessions to those parents who cannot swim or wish to improve their stroke.
The major downside is that the pool is closed for school holidays. Not so much of a problem during the long summer break as we are in our open water season but inconvient during other times. We are both members of a gym with a pool and use that as well for individual sessions. Most of our public pools will allow you to coach if you hire a lane.
