A Note About Swimming Lessons
About Our Staff: We aim to have a maximum ratio of one teacher for every eight students during school age classes and one teacher for every six students during preschool classes. Depending on class size and ability, additional assistants may also be assigned.
Picking the Right Class: If you are unsure which class to take, then either: Review the class descriptions to see if you can confidently meet the requirements of that class, or Contact the Pool to take an informal skills test. Instructors also evaluate all participants on the first day of class to assure students are registered for the most appropriate level. Please do not feel concerned if you are asked to switch. Finding your perfect class will offer you the greatest amount of support as you are learning.
Parent Involvement: Parents provide their children with enhanced confidence and greater ease in learning the skills when they spend time swimming with their children. Additionally, parents are welcome to watch their swimmers during lessons from designated areas (standing or swimming alongside your swimmer is only allowed in the Parent&Tot class). Please remove your shoes when watching from pool decks.
Registration: You MUST register at least one week prior to the class start date. To register, contact the Pool with your name, phone number and address. Payment is required on the first day of class, and scholarships are available by contacting the Aquatic Director in advance of the class. We reserve the right to cancel and combine classes due to low enrollment, and will notify you of such changes prior to the class start. Should you register and then determine to not participate and fail to notify us of your intention, we will expect payment in full.
