Commonly Asked Questions About Evaluations:

What should I expect at the evaluation? Your child will be evaluated using our SwimAmerica Program skills.  Evaluations will last between 10-15 minutes. Evaluations are an assessment of your swimmers abilities and a tool to determine which level they should enroll in.  

My child previously was in lessons does my child need an evaluation?   Yes.  If you have not been enrolled in our program in the last six months, you will need an evaluation. 

Why does my child need to have an evaluation? Placement in an appropriate group is necessary for participants safety. Participants can advance and regress during lapses in formal lesson programs.

Will my child have to repeat a Level class based on the evaluation?  Advancement is based on the skills they demonstrate.  If your swimmer does not pass the advancement skill to move to the next level, they will need to repeat the level until they have met the requirements to move.

What lessons does my child need to have an evaluation for? Participants registering in the Group Lessons Levels 1-10, Pre-Competitive, or Pre-School Group Lessons must have an evaluation. Participants registering in Parent/Child Classes or Privates do not need an evaluation.
