The first summer session, which includes pre-school (ages 3-5) and youth classes (ages 5-12), will follow a summer camp model where participants will attend eight, 30-minute lessons Monday-Thursday for two weeks. Depending on the participant’s swimming ability, pre-school lessons will start at either 3:15 p.m. or 3:55 p.m. and youth classes will start at 4:35 p.m. or 5:15 p.m.

All participants are strongly encouraged to complete a swim test to be placed in the correct level.

Guardians will be notified no later than May 28 of what time slot each participant is enrolled in. If swim tests are not completed by May 26, the participant will automatically be enrolled in either pre-school level one or youth level one, depending on their age.
