Schedule of Lessons- Each two-week session is held Monday through Thursday, with the exception of weeks where there are holidays. Holiday and Private Lesson schedules are included in their respective class descriptions.

Start of Lessons-Please arrive on time to your lessons so your swimmer does not miss the review, safety talk and warm up. Parents will need to check their child(ren) in on the class roster each day. 

During Lessons -While your child is involved in the lesson, please do not stand or sit at the edge of the pool. In order to provide optimum instruction, we ask that while you are observing the lesson, please refrain from calling out additional instructions to your child. Parent interaction from the deck can be distracting to the instructor and often results in reduced attention from the participants.

Age Designations for Lessons -Swim lessons are designed primarily for youth ages 3-12 years. Older children will be accommodated based upon class availability. Lesson progression moves from Tadpoles to Level 3 and is based on successful completion of current enrollment and students age. Please note that the age requirements for each level are strictly adhered to. Exceptions will be made at the discretion of the Program Supervisor only.

Pool Closure-Lessons are taught rain or shine. Situations that may require pool closure are: Contamination of water, mechanical malfunction, chemical imbalance, inclement weather such as lightening, thunder or conditions brought on by earthquake.

Lesson Guidelines:
If the participant has had no prior experience with lessons and/or has had limited exposure to water, it is best to start at the beginning level for their age group.

If the child has had previous lessons, they may be ready to enroll in the next level beyond beginner. Please refer to the class descriptions and carefully review the skills needed to participate, as well as the skills that will be taught in class.

Classes fill quickly, therefore it may be advantageous to register your child for two sessions of the same level and then for another session at the next level. This ensures space in the program if they do not pass the first time.

Please read class descriptions carefully. Swimmers registered for a class in which they are not qualified will be transferred to the correct class only if there is a vacancy. If there is no vacancy, your payment will be credited to your account. Classes with fewer than four students are subject to cancellation. In the event of pool closure, your account will be credited accordingly. Credits or make-up classes will not be given for lessons missed by participants.

Pool Use Guidelines:
Please note that the Youth Swim Program is held at the Windsor Senior Center, 9231 Foxwood Drive. Please enter pool area & restrooms through the side gate, rather than through the Senior Center.
