Swim Lessons

Swim lesson registration for November classes will be on October 30th @ 10am to open online.  Classes begin Novemer 12th.

The process of registering is more of an application to register.  The pool staff will then do the work behind the scenes to place your swimmer into either your 1st choice or 2nd choice class if available.  Students who have been enrolled within the previous 60 days will have priority to be placed in class and is not a first come first served.  Once placed you will receive an invoice by email to pay for the class which will finalize the registration. 

Hint:

You are not registered until you select a specific class level w/ days and class time.  To complete registration a payment is required after we send the invoice for your selected class.
