Do you know your child’s swim level?

July 09, 2015

 

Swim level testing is available to place your child in swim lessons"
As we all know, it is vital that parents register their children for the correct level in group swimming lessons. To help parents with this placement, we offer FREE swim evaluations for children ages 3-12 interested in enrolling in lessons.  
While all lifeguards are equipped to evaluate someone's deep water swimming ability (Swim Test), we have certain team members that are well versed in evaluating a child's level placement (Group Swim Lesson Evaluation).  Because of this, we are limiting the windows of time that evaluations are offered. 

When are Group Swim Lesson Evaluations Offered? 
NOTE: For fall these times will be adjusted. 
Summer 2015: 
MondayFriday 12:00-2:00pm
Saturday & Sunday 1:00-3:00pm

How does someone take advantage of this service?  
  • There is no need to register for evaluations during the times offered.
  • Participants should stop at the front desk to check in and fill out a waiver (if not members). 
  • Then come to the pool deck to meet with the aquatics staff. 
  • For children between ages 3-5, parents should be prepared to be in the water with their child during the evaluation. 
  • Participants then will be given a "Graduation Card" w/level placement.
