How long does it typically take to pass each series?

  • Each child progresses differently. Don’t wait until the last week of a session to enroll for the next month. It is recommended to sign up for multiple months at least thirty days prior to the beginning of the next session.

  • Enroll for a minimum of three months at the same level to ensure there are no interruptions. For example, when enrolling for Tadpole, plan on a minimum of three months before your child passes to Minnow. If the swimmer progresses and you are already enrolled for the next month at the incorrect level, contact 303-471-8867 or email to transfer.

  • The first day of class, student’s skill levels will be tested to make sure they are in the appropriate class. To assist in this process, please bring your child’s Report Card from the previous month’s session to the first day of each session.

  • If a student is disruptive or uncooperative alternative solutions will be discussed.
