Swim Class Assessment
Get your FREE Swim Assessment completed BEFORE registration opens. Visit your nearest pool during regular hours of operation to complete your assessment.
It is extremely important to make sure you register for the appropriate class for your skill level, especially for Levels 3 and up as we move into deeper water, we want to make sure that participants are ready for that next level.
Everyone will receive another assessment the first day of class in order to ensure they have been placed in the right level.
If you do not receive an assessment and are registered for an incorrect level, you are at risk to being removed from the class roster, with no guaranteee of a spot in the class of your appropriate level for that session.
