Other Important Information

·         Swim lessons are $35.00 per session per person.  Swim lessons take place for two weeks, Monday through Thursday, for 45 minutes at Plymouth Pool.

·         Lessons are held on rainy days.  If a class is cancelled due to lightening, it will be rescheduled on the Friday of that week. 

·         On the first day of lessons please make sure your child is prepared to start on time.  We have a lot of information to cover in a short period of time.

·         Level 1 is a parent-tot class. Parents must accompany their child in the water for Level 1.

·         Swim Lessons 017If your child is participating in Levels II-V, you will only be allowed to view the lesson from outside the fence.  This will allow our staff to maximize their time with your child.

·         During swim lessons we do not allow any kind of flotation devices in the pool – this includes water wings and life jackets.  Goggles are acceptable. 

·         Please review the lesson descriptions carefully.  By signing your child up for lessons, you agree that your child is able to complete all the benchmarks of the prior level.  Parents are responsible for ensuring their children are in the level-appropriate lesson for their child.  If our staff finds that a level is too advanced and poses a safety risk for the child, the child will be removed from the class. 

·         Parents will only be able to pre-register children for one level higher than the child’s current level.  If the child does not pass the current level they will not proceed to the next level.     

·         Please know it is common for children to repeat levels before they are able to demonstrate each skill (and we encourage it!).  It is not important how quickly they move through the program but that they master each skill within the level.

·         Should you wish to speak to one of our staff, our swim lesson supervisor will be on deck after your child’s lesson.  Do not hesitate to approach them.

·         To be notified of lesson cancellations you must have registered to receive Rainout Line notifications or call our Rainout Line at 989-399-0506.
