Group Lessons

Group lessons are offered by the week. They include 5 one hour classes, Monday- Friday. Two swimming levels are taught each hour. Each group has an adult teacher and a helper.  There are 5-6 children in a group, depending on the level.  If you need a description of the levels, please check out our videos under Level Highlights or email us at movewaterswim@gmail.com.

Cost:  $250 for five 1-hour lessons every weekday for 1 week

$260 for the Junior Lifesaving Class

$200 for the Parent & Me Class

How many weeks should my child take?  We suggest 2 weeks in the same summer for Levels 1 & 2.  The repetition really helps the children get comfortable and swim farther! We suggest one week for all other levels along with lots of swimming to practice the skills they learned!

For Newly Registered Parents: Please sign-up and bring your child to one of the “Meet the Teachers” times to let them meet us and see the pool to help your child get adjusted. Children are not allowed to fully get into the water. The sign-up is found here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f4faba823a2f58-meet3 .

Bring: Your child needs to be dressed in a swim suit and flip-flop they can easily get on and off themselves, as well as a towel and goggles with their name on the strap. Please send your child in a swim diaper if they are not potty trained. 

Carpool for Group Lessons: 1742 Carruthers Place Memphis, TN 38112 is our address. We will be waiting for you 5 minutes before lessons start. Turn onto our street from Hawthorne. If you enter Carruthers Place from Evergreen, you will be driving on the opposite side of the road from our house. Once you have turned onto Carruthers from Hawthorne, get in line and wait for us to direct you to one of the cones. When dropping off, we will get your child out of their car seat. When picking up, parents will get out of their cars to assist their children with climbing into the car and buckling in. 

NEW Neighbor Awareness: In 2021 we received the most neighbor complaints since starting lessons on this street 21 years ago. This is very important to read and follow.  Thank you for helping us keep our neighbors happy and our backyard open for lessons. Do not turn around in neighbors drive-ways in an effort to get into the carpool line. Do not block our neighbors’ driveways as you are waiting in line. Do not pull forward on our street to change your children into dry clothes.

Parent & Me Class: Please bring your child already dressed in a bathing suit and swim diaper with a towel.  (no goggles)  You will want to put sunscreen on your child because the pool is sunny during this time.  We have a 10:15-11:15 class, & we will be running carpool until 11:25 am. Wait to park on our side of the street until 11:25 am or after.   

Level 5: In addition to regular goggles, students need a mask, snorkel, and fins for this class.  (We like the rubber fins where the entire foot is enclosed instead of the ones with the heel straps.  We have found fins at amazon.com.  We have found mask & snorkel sets at Target or Walmart.)

Junior Lifesaving Class: Bring goggles and a towel daily. This class will meet rain or shine. We will give them a syllabus on Monday. 

Videos:  Progress videos of key skills will be taken on the last day of lessons. A confidential link to the video album will be emailed to you within 24-48 hours. We encourage you to follow the instructions outlined in the email. 

Rain:  Please do not assume that lessons are canceled because it is raining at your house. It may not be raining here!  If a lesson is canceled, it will be made up on Saturday of that same week at the same time. We will send out a cancellation text message through our website with the phone number you provided during registration. 

Make up Lessons: We are unable to make up for vacations, birthday parties, or sporting events.  With the number of children and lessons involved, we have to hold to this policy.  Thank you for understanding.  If your child gets sick or injured, please email us, and we will do our best to accommodate you.
