Group Lesson FAQ

There must be three children registered in a class – if 2 or fewer we will work to merge classes together or the lesson will become a semi/private lesson and correspond to private lesson rates.

Instructors will ask each child to perform certain skills on the first day of class to ensure their proper placement in the class – if any major adjustments are needed we will discuss them with the parent. It is our goal to have children with similar swimming skills in the same class, although they may not necessarily be the same age. When children are ready to advance to the next level, coaches will make that recommendation, otherwise, they should be registered for the same class.

No refunds are given after the first class of the current session.

Please arrive at least 5 minutes early to maximize our time in the water. Athletes should wear a proper bathing suit and bring a pair of goggles to use every class.

In summer we face the possibility of inclement weather – if class is canceled due to pool closure for any reason, we cannot offer make up classes/refunds/proration. We will do everything we can to avoid cancelations.
