Due to the limited space available in each session and class, a registration waitlist will be maintained. 

Students will be asked to register in one of two categories – non-swimmer or swimmer. Students for non-swimmer classes have the option to have a parent or guardian accompany them in the pool during each lesson. For the non-swimmer classes, an instructor will be teaching and guiding the parent/guardian about how to help their child with the swimming skills being taught if they choose to accompany the child during the lesson. 

Prior to registering, please determine if your child is a non-swimmer or swimmer by matching the following benchmarks to your child's skill level.
