Wait lists

If the lesson or course you are looking for is full, then please ask to be put on the waitlist. Staff use these waitlists to add classes based on greatest demand. Please keep in mind that added classes may have different start times and dates, so you may need to be a little flexible. 

Registration Tips

When registering online please make sure that you complete all the prompts required. This information will assist our staff in making certain that your child is placed in the correct class. All swimmers will also be evaluated by their instructor on the first day of lesson to ensure that swimmers are in the class that meets their individual needs best.
