Questions?

  • How many people are in each group lesson?
      Ratios for group lessons are 5 participants per instructor. If there is over 5 participants, we will add an additional instructor.
  • How many lessons are included in group lessons?
      In total, there are 8 sessions. The first class consists of skills test to ensure each participant is in the proper level class, followed by 7 sessions of instruction and safety lessons.
  • What if I don’t know which level is for me?
      To run a group lesson, we need at least three participants. If a level does not have enough enrollment, you can take the level below, pay the difference for private lessons or receive a refund if the class is cancelled.
  • What if I can’t make it to one of the group lesson dates?
      We recommend attending every session in order to learn the skills in a logical progression; however, you may miss up to two lessons and still be eligible for the exit skills assessment, which is the American Red Cross’s standard for certifying swimmers and moving up levels. No refunds or makeup sessions will be granted for any missed lessons.
  • What if the level I sign up for does not have enough enrollment?
      To run a group lesson, we need at least three participants. If a level does not have enough enrollment, you can take the level below or pay the difference for private lessons.
