Please feel free to click the drop down menus for each lesson below. There you will find detailed descriptions about each level which will help you decide. If you are still not sure, contact us and we will do our best to guide you. However, until we get your child in the water it is often impossible to tell exactly which level is best for them. Sometimes we are able to switch children to a different level but at other times maximum capacities in each class prevent us from doing so.
Youth group lessons will be taking place on Tuesday and Thursday, over the four-week course, with a total of eight lessons per session for Fall 2017.
