GROUP SWIMMING LESSONS
Offered for children 18 mths-14 yrs old (age as of first day of session date). Programs range from Baby & Me classes through Level 5/6. Lessons meet for eight classes over two weeks, Monday through Thursday with Fridays/Saturdays used for make-up classes. In the event a swimming lesson is cancelled, the instructor will notify participants. If we do not contact you, assume the class is running. Refunds/credits are not provided for missing a scheduled class.
All lessons are group classes with no more than 6 participants per Instructor. Classes must reach a minimum of 4 participants to run. The registration deadline is Wednesday prior to the first day of class. We will make every attempt to run all advertised classes. If your class does not reach minimum participation requirements, you will be notified on the Thursday prior to the first class and a full refund will be provided.
Level descriptions can be found online or in our office. If a participant is registered for a class more advanced than their ability, instructors will let you know on the first day of class. Participants may not remain in a class that is unsafe for their ability level. Every attempt will be made to transfer your registration to an appropriate level class during the same session. If this is not available, you have the option to transfer your registration to a class in a later session, or have a credit applied to your account.
Swim Testing For Swim Level
If you have reviewed the level descriptions and you are not sure what level to register for, you can sign up for a swim test. Swim instructors will assess the participants abilities and let you know what level they should register for. Assessment of skills is based upon VPR swim curriculum. The cost to be swim tested will be credited towards the cost of a swim lesson for this season provided the participant attends their swim test AND registers for a swim lesson this summer. Credits cannot be applied to other programs or next summer’s swim lessons.
Must pre-register for an available time slot.
