Level Assessment

Please click the “This is my Level” Button next to the statement that best describes your child’s CURRENT swimming abilities. Please take into account your child’s age and regression, if the child has not swam since last year. 

If the listed skills describe your swimmer but they are older than the listed age we suggest starting with Private Lessons. Older kids generally learn very quickly due to their physical and mental development. When their swimming skills match their stage of development we suggest joining group Swimming lessons…
