FIND YOUR CHILD'S CORRECT SWIMMING LESSON LEVEL

Directions: Please read each section and check off the skills your child can currently demonstrate. Each child will be encouraged to improve his/her skills and will be challenged by the teacher to learn new skills. Most children repeat levels many times.

During peak swim lesson season we offer Preschool Level I or II for your child to be with his/her peers.
