Lesson Information

Streamline Aquatics offers lessons to swimmers age 5 (MUST be completely potty trained) to 13. Levels below show the progression of skills taught and are a guide for parents. For our younger or more inexperienced swimmers, there are 3-4 swimmers per instructor. As swimmers become proficient and independent in the water, the groups become larger, 5-6 swimmers per instructor. Water safety conversations with swimmers are ongoing at all levels.

During Covid:

 All swimmers must wear masks from their car into the pool until they get into the water. Social distancing is required at all times. 

All swim instructors will wear face shields during lessons. 

Swimmers will bring a ziplock bag to the pool's edge and put their mask into the bag once they are at the water. When they finish their lesson, they put their mask back when they get out of the water. They will continue to wear their mask until they return to their car. Many swimmers bring an extra dry mask should their mask get uncomfortably wet. Like all equipment, the ziplock bag must be labeled with the swimmer's name.
After getting out of the pool, swimmers will dry off and put on their clothes over their bathing suit. 

NO parents are permitted in the pool due to capacity limitations. No exceptions.

Swimmers will only have access to a bathroom in an emergency, and shoes are required. No showers or locker rooms available.

Regular lessons are usually 45 minutes, however during Covid, we feel swimmers & instructors need extra time for social distancing.
 
If we are required to shut down by the government, we will refund our lesson families.  If a child gets covid or quarantined due to exposure, we do not refund.
 
There are no makeup classes, no prorating, and no refunds.
