Swimmers may sign up for consecutive sessions.   Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate subsequent requests to switch lesson times once they’ve been assigned.


After each 2-week session, children may move up to the next swim level (for example, children who complete Beginner level can move up to Intermediate level) if deemed appropriate by the instructors.

Evaluations must be done prior to the beginning of the lessons for placement into the proper group (see goals below) and to assure your swimmer of a spot.  Our objective is to maximize the benefit of lessons by trying to keep classes smaller.  Results will be posted on or around June 22nd.    Evaluations will take place from noon to 1 p.m. on the Saturdays of June 9th, 16th and 23rd.

Results will be posted by the afternoon on June 24th.

Stop by the office to sign up!
