Swimming Lesson Placement/Class Selection (Please read carefully.)

Step 1: Age
Please select the correct age range for the student. Please note, the classes are almost identical between age ranges. Beginners will be taught a similar lesson in both the Tot and Youth age groups. The reason for the separation is to keep kids with similar attention spans, tolerances, and maturity levels together.

Tot age group: 3 to 5 years old
Levels 1 through 4: 6 to 14 years old

Step 2: Ability Level
Please select the general ability level of the student based on the skills provided for each lesson. If your student has no experience with the water, please enroll them in the Tot 1 or Level 1.
