SwimNOVA is an effective and proven method of teaching swimming fundamentals.

"A Skilled Swimmer is a Safer Swimmer."


With the ongoing concerns of covid, the lessons office is closed to in person registration.

  • Registration for a space in a class (*not payment) will be done by phone. Please call and LEAVE ONE CLEAR VOICEMAIL with your name and number and swimmer's information if we are unable to pick up. 804-754-3401 option #1. 
  • The lessons coordinator is in the office for several hours each day returning calls in the order received and will return your call. Leaving multiple messages causes delays in returning phone calls, so please only leave ONE voicemail.
  • Billing (not registration for a space in class) is now done through an online portal (links below), not through the lessons office.

We've made changes to streamline our billing process for SwimNOVA Lessons by moving to  Jackrabbit  for our billing needs. So what does this mean for you?

*New accounts: 
  • After you have registered for a spot through the lessons office: Register your swimmer (s) through the Parent Portal through Jackrabbit using this link: Click Here
  • Each swimmer will be charged an annual $25 registration fee that covers admin fees.
  • After your account is set up, you will be billed for your classes as you are taking a confirmed spot in the class.
*Existing accounts:
  • AFTER  you've set up your  Parent Portal,  you can use this link   Click Here   to login
For billing questions regarding Jackrabbit, Please contact Lynley Steadman at [email protected] - not the lessons office.
PLEASE NOTE:  You WILL NOT see your child's class right away. Classes are added manually and they will be visible in the Parent Portal after that time.   In addition, while some of you may have signed up for multiple sessions, you will ONLY see your current session in the Parent Portal.  Your credit card/bank account will be charged after the start of each new session.
