Frequently Asked Questions:

When does registration for swim lessons open for next month?
Registration for swim lessons will open six (6) days prior to the beginning of the next month.  

Can I be in the pool with my child during lessons?
The Swim Starters group lessons are the only lessons with a parent or guardian in the water with the child.

How do I know which level my child is ready for?
Our programs are set up by age and skills. However, that does not mean your child automatically should be enrolled in the designated level. We understand there are advanced or beginners in every age group!

We encourage you to review our "Swim Program Levels Breakdown" (below) to see which skills are taught in each group. In the "Program Overview" and "Stages of Learning" listed on pages 3 and 4 in our "Swim Program Levels Breakdown" document (below), the skills listed under each level are what your child will be learning; your child doesn’t need those skills in order to join to that level. If you’re still unsure, our aquatics team is happy to help place your child in the appropriate program! You can contact us below if you need assistance.
