Summer Lessons

Swimming lessons are designed to ensure safe environments for all our swimmers. Please carefully consider each level and determine which abilities your child has. You should enroll your swimmer(s) in the first level they do not meet ALL the listed skills, even if they meet several skills in the next level. Please note, the first day of lessons all swimmers will be evaluated and a swimmer may need to be moved if the swimmer was not enrolled in the appropriate level.
