ATTENDANCE is important for your child. Make up lessons are not provided if you miss a lesson. It is important that the instructor develops a strong leadership role with the class. This will enable the instructor to conduct an orderly and disciplined class, as well as enhance each student’s confidence as they progress. We prefer parents watch the lessons from the seating area on the deck.

MAKE–UP POLICY: No makeup classes are offered for lessons missed by participants. If for some reason we must cancel a class, every effort will be made to provide a make–up session. You may stay for open swim after lessons, but you will have to go to the front desk and pay to re–enter the pool area. Open swim is not included in the fee for swim lessons/private lessons.

REFUND POLICY for Swim Lessons: NO REFUNDS will be allowed for swim lessons unless the class was canceled by the Parks & Recreation District.

ATTIRE TO WEAR: All participants must wear a swimsuit while in the water. If your child is not potty trained, they must wear a swim diaper. Participants may bring goggles to wear during the lesson. Please ensure that you write your child’s name on the goggles.

AWARDS PROGRESSION features a swim bracelet system that is an immediate, effective, and fun way to recognize your child’s progress.

Each skill your child will learn in the course is abbreviated and printed on the bracelet next to a star. When your child masters the skill, the instructor will use a “special puncher” and punch out the star next to the new skill your child has demonstrated he/she has learned. Upon successful completion of each skill abbreviated on the child’s present bracelet, you will know that your child is ready for the next level. After registration and attending the first class, your child will be presented with a new color bracelet for the next level. Not only do the bracelets serve as a reward, they also serve as an indicator of the child’s skill level. Bracelets should be worn to each class.
