 Our group swim lessons are structures to foster a love for swimming and offer lifelong learning. Parents may see their child remain in the swim level  for multiple session. Reasons may include but are not limited to: 

  • Age. Your child may have reached a plateau in his/her age and her bodily functions may not be ready for the next level. 
  • Class structure and class goals may be repeating already learned skills and your child may need to focus on a specific skill or skills to progress. 

Participation requirements 

Group Swim Lessons welcomes students ages 3.5 to 14 years of age. Swimmers are required to attend one of our free swim evaluations prior to registering for a class. 

  • Swim evaluations is our opportunity to see your childs swim skills prior to the first day of class. Students enter the water for 3 – 5 minutes and instructors place your child into the correct swim color.
  • Recommended to let instructor know if your child has taken swim lessons prior to evaluation start. 
  • Re-register at the end of your 5th class

Swim Evaluation Dates: All evaluations are scheduled for 1 hour. Please arrive early during summer seasons and plan for an extended wait time.
