    • All classes are 30-minutes long.
    • Enrollment is ongoing and you can begin your lessons immediately, based on availability of classes. All Water Safety classes are conducted in small groups (4:1 student/instructor ratio max). Stroke Development classes for more experienced swimmers and tadpole level where parents are hands-on have a 6:1 student/instructor ratio max.
    • ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP FEE:  $49 per student / $60 per family.
    • MAKE-UPS: We allow one make up lesson per month with 24-hour advanced notice for free, or without advance notice for a fee of $10.
    • PRIVATE AND SEMI-PRIVATE LESSONS: Private and Semi-Private lessons are available upon request and subject to availability. Please call our office for more information.
    • SINGLE CLASS ENROLLMENT: While we know from our 35+ years of experience that you cannot judge the quality of a swim program in one lesson, we are so confident in our program that we offer new families an opportunity to enroll in a single class.  We’re sure you’ll see the difference and join us!
    • PAYMENT:
      • The first month is paid upon enrollment on a pro-rated basis.
      • As payment we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and Amex.
      • Your card will be charged automatically around the 25th of each month for the following month’s lessons. For student enrollments on or after the 20th of a given month, we will charge the following month tuition at the time of enrollment. You will be auto-enrolled for the following month until you cancel. For cancellations, we require written notification 30 days in advance. We will not charge your card for waitlists, but require your credit card information to hold your slot.
