UPDATE ON REGISTRATION

5/3 Registration Update: WE ARE FULL!  As of Thursday 4/29, we had responded to everyone whose forms we received.  It appears that there were a number of forms that were submitted that we never received. I have never had to close registration before 7:15 before, but this year with our reduced schedule due to school getting out later (thanks CoVid19) and some family events we have going on at the end of the summer, we knew we had less spots than usual and the forms came in faster than ever so I had to shut registration down at 7:03:10.  I believe there were some forms that were submitted right about that time that looked like they went through on your end, but didn't come through on ours.  We've been using this system for 9 years now and this is the first time we've had this happen. We really apologize!!! Unfortunately, we were unable to fit even all of the families whose forms we did received and we are currently out of beginner and advanced spots.  We may have a couple of intermediate spots and I'll update the website soon to reflect those.  

4/28 Registration Update: We have reached out to the first 133 families who sent in forms this morning. That only got us to 7:01:58, so if you submitted at 7:02 or later, we'll get back to you tomorrow when we work on the last 70ish forms! Thank you for your patience!

How to Register for Swim Lessons Summer 2021

Hello Little Fish! REGISTRATION FOR SWIM LESSONS WILL OPEN ON TUESDAY, APRIL 27th AT 7:00 a.m. and will remain open until we have 250 families registered. At that time we will temporarily close registration until we have processed those first 250 and then we will re-open registration a few days later if we still have spots :) We anticipate adding additional classes (especially in the mornings) once we confirm teacher availability. Here is how you register: 

 1. Click on "schedule" at the top of this page. Scroll ALL the way to the bottom to read a description of levels and determine which level you should register your child(ren) for. Then look through the sessions and pick out the dates and times you would like. We highly recommend picking at least 2 - 3 options that would work for you and putting those down on the online registration form so that if we can't get you into your first choice, we can work you into your 2nd or 3rd choice! Or, better yet, just give us a window of time (i.e. please schedule me between 9 and noon this session).

2. When registration opens, click on this link below to take you to the registration form and fill it out. This link will NOT be live until 7 a.m. on April 27th.  It will ask for your name, phone number and email, your child(ren)'s name(s), age(s) and level(s) and which session(s) and time(s) you want.  There is a limit of two sessions per each child for the initial registration on April 27th.  Here is the link to register.  


3. When you click submit at the end, you will get a confirmation message letting you know that we've received your form.  All of the forms will be time stamped to the hundredth of a second, and we will respond to requests in the order that they are received.  Please keep in mind that in past summers, we have received more than 200 forms in the first 3 minutes of registration so even if you register right at 7:00, it may take up to 48 hours to hear back from us.

4.  After you register you will receive an email confirming your session(s) and class time(s), however your spot is NOT held until we receive payment. Instructions for submitting payment will come in that confirmation email.  After submitting payment, if you do NOT receive an email confirming that we have received payment, please contact us to make sure that we have received payment or your spot will be given to someone else.  Your tuition is NOT refundable except in the case of extreme illness of the student. 

 Tuition will be $75 per student per 2 week session

We look forward to working with you this summer!

New protocols due to CoVid19



For information about registration, please scroll down 1 post!

In light of the CoVid19 pandemic and in an effort to support social distancing, some of our policies will be different for the summer of 2020. 
  1.  LIMITING ATTENDANCE: Only one adult and one car per family may come to swim lessons each day.  We know that the kids love being cheered on by parents, grandparents etc. but to help minimize parking problems and to keep the numbers on our property as low as possible we will allow only one adult per day.  Mom and Dad can switch off so that both can see the progress.
  2. SOCIAL DISTANCING: While waiting for your class to begin, please sit as families outside the pool area and maintain social distancing rules. When your class is called, please come inside the fence by way of gate number 1 and remain inside the gated pool area during your child’s lesson. We will have chairs grouped around the pool allowing for as much social distancing as possible.  Those leaving lessons should exit via gate 2. 
If you have children in multiple levels, the family should stay together as a group either inside the pool fence or outside and avoid socializing in the yard.
  1. CLEANING & SANITATION: We will be doing additional cleaning of the porta potty to keep surfaces clean and the sunshine will help immensely too.  We will also have cleaning supplies on the table at the pool to wipe down and sanitize chairs between use.
  2. REFUNDS: Normally, refunds are only issued in case of severe illness (if they have to miss multiple days of the session) or death in the immediate family.  However, this year if you decide to cancel your lessons due to general concerns about CoVid19, you may receive a full refund if that cancellation takes place at least 72 hours before the start of your swim session.  If you suspect that you have been directly exposed to CoVid19 or you or any member of your family is exhibiting any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea), please DO NOT come to lessons and we will provide a refund.
