Not sure which level? 

For children crawling through age 8 who cannot swim and float independently.  This class will teach your child to swim and float even in clothes and shoes.

If you are not sure if your child can skip Survival, please send a recent (within the last 2 months) video of your child swimming to 

We will let you know if they are skilled enough to register for a Stroke/Maintenance class!

If your child has special needs please contact us before registering to discuss so we can find the right fit for you.

Available Classes

Why are all your openings in the early afternoon?  I need later times!
Almost all families want classes later in the day, so they fill first.  With most schools out for the summer session, early afternoon classes are a great way to get started as soon possible.  If you cannot make the above times work please register for our waitlist here.
