  • Even the best swimmers can encounter water emergencies

Program Progression


Early-Bird Swim Lesson Registrations

We provide swimmers that are currently enrolled in our Group Swim Lesson program the opportunity to enroll early to help ensure long-term skill progression.

Currently enrolled swimmers are not guaranteed enrollment in the following session until their registration has been completed. 

Early Registration Requirements

Early registrations can only be performed for eligible swimmers. Those that wrongfully register early will be removed from the class and will receive an 85% percent refund of their original payment. 

Only swimmers that are currently enrolled in swim lessons and are enrolling for the following session may register early.

If you are unsure of your swimmer's eligibility, please speak with a staff member at (816) 986-1465.
