Swim lessons will be taught again this season.  We will still try to offer a variety of levels of swimming lessons every session.  Each class requires a minimum of 4 students registered and paid before each class can begin.  Class registrations will close three days before the new session begins.  We will continue to keep the student teacher ratio to a minimal level, striving to add an instructor with 7 or more children in the class.  A waiting list may be maintained, and additional classes might be scheduled if instructors and space are available.  We cannot guarantee that you will get the desired time for class if you are on the waiting list.  You will be notified on the weekend preceding the start of the class to confirm your child’s participation.  Only paid registrants are guaranteed a place in the class, and instructors are assigned once the class has 4 registered. 

 

We will ask each child to perform certain skills on the first day of class to ensure their proper placement in the class.  It is our goal to have the children in each class to be as similar in skills (not necessarily in age) as possible.  Please bear with us during this process.  Our instructors will make sure the child is in the correct class.  In addition, let us know of any special circumstances that require you child to be in a particular class or time period. 

 

Private Lessons (1:1 ratio) and Semi-Private Lessons (2:1 ratio) are available for  members only  and available any time the pool is open to members except during scheduled group lesson times.  However, availability of instructors could be limited at certain times.  You must pay for the child when you register at the front desk.
