Parents and guardians/babysitters of those swimmers under the age of 12 are required to stay in the pool area during swim lessons.

Swim meets may affect afternoon swim lessons since many lifeguards swim for swim team and assistant swim team coaches are also swim instructors. You will be notified by the morning of an away swim meet if PM lessons are canceled.

To provide each child with the opportunity to participate in swim lessons, we will try to guarantee each child two swim lesson sessions during the summer. For those members who desire additional lessons, we will try to accommodate such requests to the best of our ability. Due to the popularity of the lessons, we may not be able to honor all requests for additional lessons, or for a particular session. To make the most of the available time slots, we ask that the afternoon sessions be limited to children who are not able to attend one of the morning sessions. Private lessons are also available, for an additional fee. Children must be at least 3 years old to participate.

Parents and guardians/babysitters of those swimmers under the age of 12 are required to stay in the pool area during swim lessons.
