Q. How do I know which level swim class to take?

We will, of course, help to guide you to the correct class at the time of registration. In the meantime, you will find a complete list of our class levels listed under Swim Programs on our Programs tab. All class descriptions include any prerequisite requirements if applicable. All new students are very carefully evaluated during their first lesson to assure optimal placement in our program.

Q. What should I bring to class?
Click on our Forms tab and select "Welcome New Swimmer" to see all of the information you'll need to get ready for your first class. In general, a towel, bathing suit, and a smile are all that's needed. (Little swimmers under 3 years, must wear swim diapers). We suggest that students with long hair wear a cap or tie their hair back for their own comfort.

Q. Where can we change clothes?

Our pool facilities have restrooms available for changing. However, as a time-saver, many parents choose to have children wear their swimsuits under their clothes so when they arrive, they are ready to begin class.

Q. When should I arrive at the pool?

Please arrive ten minutes prior to class to your first class in order to judge your travel and preparation time. First-time students will be greeted by one of our staff members to provide you with a brief orientation. After your first week, use your best judgment as classes start promptly as scheduled.

Q. Can parents observe swim lessons?
Parents are able to quietly sit poolside during lessons. We ask that parents to consider sitting slightly away from the immediate area where instructors are working in order to minimize student distraction. Please not engage our instructors in conversations while lessons are in progress, thank you for your understanding.

Q What happens if the pool closes?
We will make every attempt to contact you in advance if a class session is canceled due to inclement weather, or unexpected pool closure. If classes are canceled by the Aquatics Academy, you will have the option of a credit or refund for that class.

Q. What about "snow days" ?
In the event of inclement weather, we will text message affected students. You are also welcome to call our offices to find out the status of your class  Affected students will also receive text message via cell phone or a personal phone call to advise them of the cancellation.
