Youth Group Swim Lessons (ages 5 - 14)
All group swim lessons are small groups, 30 min lessons. Students will be evaluated on the first day of class within the first 5 minutes and divided into groups based on age and ability. Students will be placed into Levels 1-10. Student progress will be recorded by the Site Supervisor and then logged & tracked in the Pike13 system. Pike13 is where you can register and see notes on your child’s progress. USA Swimming Certificates will also be handed out on the first day of classes to help track your child’s progress.
Goggles are not allowed until a child is comfortable independently putting their face in the water. Swim shoes are not allowed in the pool during lessons. No flotation devices are allowed during lessons. Students must wear a swimsuit and bring a towel. Swim caps are recommended for students to keep hair out of their eyes.
See a brief description of the levels below.
