Swim Lesson FAQ

How warm is the pool water? 89 degrees

Do you add chlorine to the pool? No, it is a salt pure pool. We add pool salt when necessary and the reaction to the water creates a base of chlorine that is needed to keep the water clean and healthy.

Why a salt pool instead of chlorine or bromine? We find it to be gentler on the skin and hair as well as help eliminate red eyes.

Do you offer American Red Cross classes? Yes we do! Multiple levels – parent and child, toddler and levels 1 -6

When are American Red Cross classes offered? Saturday and Sunday mornings, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. We also offer parent / child and toddler classes Tuesday and Friday mornings

How many children per instructor? We keep the ratio low to maximize instruction time. Parent / child up to 9 per class. Toddler classes no more than 4 per one instructor. Levels 1 – 6 up to 5 in the class

What happens if my child should miss a class? We offer make-ups on Saturdays at 9:25 am and on Sundays at 10:25 am. You just have to schedule them with a supervisor.

When is your next session offered? Our program is continual; therefore you are able to join at any time provided room available in your preferred class. Initial payment would be for 8 classes but if joining in the middle of a month that amount would be pro-rated.

What if I want to continue in the lessons? You could do so on a month to month after the first two months.

When joining in the middle of the month won’t my child be missing skills? No, swimming is learned by repetition of skills.
