Sessions are Monday through Thursday for 2 weeks.  Each session has 8 lessons.  The lessons are 30 minutes long.  Members please bring your card with you for check in.  Non-members and spectators must bring valid id upon entering the doors.  This is for your child’s safety.  Not all levels are offered at each time and will change each session depending on the need for that level, as well as instructor availability.  We encourage you to sign up early to guarantee the spot/time you need.  Late registration may be accepted on a limited basis but is subject to a $10 late fee per participant.  Please remember that shoes are not allowed on the deck and must be removed before entering the pool doorways.  Benches are provided in both pools for you to watch your children.  Please do not sit on the deck against the wall/under the hand rails.  Blocking access to handrails is not ADA compliant, a trip hazard, and makes emergency evacuations more difficult.  You will be asked by the lifeguard to sit on the benches.  We encourage you to have an open line of communication with your child’s instructor, please try to wait until the end of the lesson or during free time so time isn’t taken away from the other participants.  You can always ask the instructor to call you if you need more time to talk with them.
