Colony Swim Club provides swim lessons for club members only. Waitlist families are allowed to take swim lessons in Session 4 if space is available. Lesson are available for children of all abilities, are taught by Colony's certified life guarding staff, and follow American Red Cross guidelines.
Levels are based on the American Red Cross "Learn to Swim" program.
If you are not sure which level your child should be in, please take your best guess and add a note to the sign up sheet for the swim lesson staff to follow up with you.
As recommended by the American Red Cross, class sizes are limited in order to provide a safe, manageable student-teacher ratio.
Level 1-3: Maximum of 8 students per instructor
Level 4-6: Maximum of 10 students per instructor
