We want to ensure your child is enrolled in a class level that is appropriate for their current skills, and will allow them to grow their skills as they become more comfortable in the water. The first lesson begins with a swim skill evaluation for any brand new children to our program, after which all students are assigned to the proper level and begin working with their instructor to build their skills. Simply sign up for a date and time that works for your children, and we take care of the rest!

 

Did you know... In 2018, over 550 children participated in swim lessons at the Kroc - many of whom participated in at least 2-3 sessions!
