Placement Nights Ages 3 years & Up

We are excited! Our swimming lesson program has undergone many changes and we want to ensure that your child is placed in the appropriate level so they are guaranteed the highest quality of swimming lessons that we have to offer. All children who will be participating in YMCA swimming lessons will be required to attend one placement night to get them started in the correct lesson. Only one placement night is necessary. Once placement night is completed, payment will be applied to the first lesson. This 10 minute evaluation will let us know exactly what class your child should be in. At the completion of each session, your child will receive a skills review with information of what level to sign up for next. Registration must be done at the welcome center to hold your time slot on the day chosen below. We have many children to fit into our placement nights so attendance is mandatory; once completed, payment will be applied to your first session. If you do not show up, for your placement night, payment will not be refunded or applied to the first session. Please be understanding of our needs of getting all children in the correct lesson. Fee: $25/$50

We have restructured our swimming lessons to offer your child the highest quality possible. Due to this change, on-line registration is unavailable. This is to ensure everyone is signing up for the correct level so lessons can run as effectively as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Important things to note:

• Levels must have a minimum of 3 participants to run.
• Parents are only allowed in the pool area on the last night of lessons—we need your cooperation with this. We want to ensure that we have your child’s complete attention as we teach them skills that can save their life. We need and appreciate your cooperation.
• All sessions will include 8 lessons. If a cancellation is needed due to inclement weather or uncontrollable circumstances we will do our best to have a make up lesson. If this is not possible no refund will be given.
