Not sure which level? 

For beginners who cannot swim and float independently

If you would like to sign your child up for survival please give us a call at 919-972-1792 or email us at  We will help you choose 3 open spots from the "Maintenance/Stroke" opening list below with the same teacher so your child can have enough times per week to learn Survival!

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.
