How do you choose the right swim class for your child?

 

Level 1-4 students are ages 4-16 years old. Level 1 low students are beginners who are not comfortable putting their heads under the water. If you believe your child's skill level is above a Level 1 low class, please visit the pool during family swim hours so we can conduct a swim test. No appointment is necessary. We require this even when children have taken classes at other facilities.

 

Class Policies

 

  • All children must be 4 years old or older to register for levels 1-4 (lessons are conducted without a parent in the water. You should have proof of age with you at the time of registration and your child's first class).
  • NEW STUDENTS (or returning students with more than 6 months since your last lesson): If you believe your child is higher than a level 1 low, you must come down to the pool PRIOR to your child's lesson to take a swim level test, otherwise simply register for level 1 low. You may not register for above a level 1 low unless you have taken the swim level test.  Moving your child upt to a higher level may not be possible once the start of classes occurs, unless new skills are gained as a result of our instructions.
  • RETURNING STUDENTS: If you have taken lessons within the last 6 months you must register your child for the last level they took at the Kennedy Pool. If you believe your child may have gained the skills to move up to the next level than you must come in for a swim level test PRIOR to registering to register for a higher level.
  • Swim lessons level test are given during family swim hours. Please see the main web page for the current hours.
  • We do not take registration over the phone, nor to we hold a space without payment and full registration.
  • If the class you would like to register for is full, you may come to the pool OR call to be placed on a waiting list.
