For Swim Lessons Pre-Registration...

SwimNOVA is a progressive learn-to-swim program that helps young swimmers learn key skills and develop a lifelong love of swimming.

There is a two-step process to enroll your child for lessons:

  1. Establish Pre-Registration Online Account - please complete the pre-registration online link, including contact and medical information, policies, and waivers. This must be completed before your swimmer can be placed in lessons.
  2. Register your child by contacting the Lessons Office - please call 804.754.3401 or stop by the Lessons Office. Online registration for classes is not yet available. You must speak with our Lessons coordinator to be enrolled in a specific class. During the busiest seasons (spring and summer), we recommend that you visit in person. Calls will be returned in the order they are received, but you must leave a message.

For more information about our lessons program, please read the SwimNOVA lessons policies, review the guidelines for selecting a level for your swimmer, and visit our Frequently Asked Questions page. Many of your questions can be answered by reviewing these materials. For detailed instructions about creating your pre-registration online account, click here.
