Group Swim Lessons

71% of the world is water; your child is 100% curious.

We want your child’s swimming lessons to be the best for you and them! Therefore, all children who will be participating in YMCA swimming lessons will be required to attend one placement night to get them started in the correct lesson. Only one placement night is necessary. Once placement night is completed, payment will be applied to the first lesson. This 10 minute evaluation will let us know exactly what class your child should be in. At the completion of each session, your child will receive a skills review with information of what level to sign up for next. Registration must be done at the welcome center to hold your time slot on the day chosen below. We have many children to fit into our placement nights so attendance is mandatory; once completed, payment will be applied to your first session. If you do not show up, for your placement night, payment will not be refunded or applied to the first session. Please be understanding of our needs of getting all children in the correct lesson. Fee: $28/$56

IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE:

• Levels must have a minimum of 3 participants to run.

• Parents are allowed in the pool area unless it becomes a distration, both to the instructor and participants—we need your cooperation with this. We want to ensure that we have your child’s complete attention as we teach them skills that can save their life. Not only do we need and appreciate your cooperation, but your child will feel so much more successful when they show you what they have learned at the end of their lessons.

• All sessions will include 8 lessons. If a cancellation is needed due to inclement weather or uncontrollable circumstances we will do our best to have a make-up lesson. If this is not possible no refund will be given.
