Placing Your Child (ages 3 yrs - 12 yrs)

To place your child in the proper swimming environment, Coach Rob's Pool School curriculum is divided into eight class levels (see panel below). It is important to properly place your child for maximum teaching efficiency and safety. Please note that Levels 5-6-7-8 are taught in deep water; to ensure safety students must possess independent swimming ability.

 

Skills listed under each level are those necessary to begin the class.

 Level 1

Level 1 – Maximum class size:  4 students per instructor

Level 1 is for the inexperienced swim students, ages 3 - 12 years. Level 1 Students are taught pool safety and foundation swim skills that give them confidence to start swimming independently. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND All 3, 4 & 5 year old children, take a Level 1 class, if they have not had swim lessons previously.
Must be 3 years old, under 3 may enroll in Parent/Tot class.
