Additional Information & Frequently Asked Questions

I want to register my child for multiple sessions. Do I have to pay all at once or can I pay as I go?

This is a personal preference; some parents will place their child in lessons the whole summer and pay for all sessions up front. Other parents will wait and pay for sessions as they go along. Please keep in mind that classes have a ratio of 6 students to 1 instructor and registrations are completed on a first come first serve basis, so if you do choose to wait your session may become full.

What supplies does my child need for classes?

Please bring your child dressed in a swimsuit and sunscreen, goggles (no snorkel masks), and a towel.

My three year old child can swim like a fish, can I put them in a higher level than preschool?

We will assess these kinds of swimmers on a case by case basis. 

Do I need to bring my child to their lesson if it is raining at my house?

Yes.  Florida’s weather is often unpredictable and it could be raining in one part of town and bright and sunny just down the road. Many times these summer storms move in and out very quickly. We ask that each child show up at every scheduled lesson. If we know ahead of time that the pool is closed for unsafe weather, we will do our best to call you to cancel the lesson and offer a make-up date or try to conduct a dry land exercise and education class. If any future weather cancellations happen beyond the first make-up date, no further make-up is guaranteed ( this includes if the make up date is cancelled).
