Levels for swimming lessons are assessed based on

- Discretion of the parent, and
- Discretion of the lifeguard/instructor.
If we feel your child belongs in another class based on either age, attention span, skill level, or interaction with others, we reserve the right to evaluate them and move them to a class better fit for their needs.
Please pick up or print out a Swim Parent Handbook prior to the beginning of your session. (This book will be available at the end of April).
