Your child has to be 3 ½ years old to participate in Level 1. They need to have turned 3 by December 31, 2023.
What should I do for my child who is between the ages of 6 months – 3.5 years old?
Our Parent and Me class is perfect for this age. This class is NOT infant swim rescue. It is a water adjustment class built around play, songs, and fun! View our highlight video to see some of the key skills they will learn!

How many weeks of lessons should my child take?
We recommend that children take 2 weeks of Level 1 one summer and then take 2 weeks of Level 2 the following summer. For Levels 3-5, Junior Lifesaving and Parent & Me, 1 week per summer typically suffices.

Do parents stay during group lessons?
No, parents do not stay during lessons. Children are dropped off and picked up in the carpool line. On the last day of lessons, we take videos of the taught skills. Video links and practice tips are emailed to you over the weekend. The only class where parents stay is the Parent & Me class, which is geared for ages 6 months- 3 years.
What do I do if it rains?
