Swim Class Schedule

PLEASE REMEMBER YOU NEED TO CREATE YOUR OWN LEARNING POD/COHORT FOR SEMI PRIVATE AND GROUP LESSONS; WE CANNOT PAIR UP KIDS WHO ARE NOT ACQUAINTED.

______________________________________________________________________________

CLASSES START THE WEEK YOU ENROLL AND RUN YEAR ROUND;

ONCE ENROLLED, YOU WILL KEEP YOUR DAY AND TIME EACH WEEK FROM MONTH TO MONTH UNTIL YOU NOTIFY US THROUGH EMAIL OF A DESIRED CHANGE OR WITHDRAW;

LESSONS ARE WEEKLY AND ONGOING, NOT A ONE TIME EVENT;

YOU CAN ENROLL IN AS MANY CLASSES PER WEEK AS YOU WISH;

THE SKILLS LISTED AT EACH LEVEL ARE TAUGHT IN THE CLASS, NOT WHAT THE STUDENT NEEDS TO KNOW TO BE IN THE CLASS;

A STUDENT WILL NOT MOVE TO THE NEXT LEVEL UNTIL THEY CAN ADEQUATELY PERFORM THE SKILLS IN THEIR CURRENT CLASS;

PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF WHICH CLASS TO REGISTER INTO.
