Swim Lesson Levels - Where do I place my swimmer?

The prerequisite for each class level is the successful completion of the preceding class level skills. If you are not sure which level is correct for your swimmer, please call 630-1126 to schedule a skills evaluation.

Class Policies and Procedures:

  • Participants must have previous level certificate or be able to demonstrate required skills on the first class meeting.
  • Participant will not be permitted to participate in a class beyond their skill level regardless of registration. Participants will only be transferred to the appropriate class if space is available.
  • Please keep in mind the possibility of student progression when signing up for multiple sessions.
  • Parents are required to stay within the Aquatic Complex during their swimmer’s lesson.
  • To prevent distraction, parents should refrain from interacting with their child during the lesson. 
  • Classes may be cancelled, combined and/or changed at management’s discretion.
  • Classes may be held in a classroom due to inclement weather. In the event a class is cancelled by management, five minutes will be added on to the remaining lessons for that session. This will only be done for one cancelled lesson.
  • Please plan your schedule carefully. There are no make-up lessons or credits for missed classes.
