Notes:

  1. As recommended by the American Red Cross, we limit class sizes in order to provide a safe, manageable student-teacher ratio (typical: Level 1-3: 8 or less students, level 4-6: 10 or less students/instructor). We will try to accommodate your first choice but reserve the right to assign 2nd and 3rd choice. (Earlier postmark will get higher priority.)
  2. Private swim lessons are also available with the Lifeguard of your choice. Please contact the individual Lifeguard this summer to set these up. Your swim dues do not cover private lessons.
  3. For more information please visit the American Red Cross website   http://www.redcross.org/services/hss/resources/upswim.html
  4. Parents and children:  Please stay behind the white fence during lessons.  If you intend to stay and swim after lessons are finished, please remember to sign in at the front desk.  Thank you for your cooperation.
