2019 Swim Lessons

Swim lessons at Pirates’ Hollow follow the American Red Cross curriculum. Along with teaching children how to be safer in and around water, we also introduce them to life skills of self-confidence, perseverance, and courage. We are committed to providing an environment where your child feels safe enough to try new things and accomplish goals. All of our instructors are Water Safety Instructor (WSI) certified and lifeguard certified by the American Red Cross. Please review all of the swim lesson information and level descriptions carefully to ensure you enroll your child in the correct level!

What are the prerequisites for each level? 
The prerequisite for each level is the successful demonstration of skills from the preceding level. The skills are listed in each level’s description on the following page.
When should I anticipate my child passing into the next level? 
We advise you NOT to anticipate your child passing. Swim lessons are not like school and students progress at different rates. It is not   unusual for your child to repeat the same level several times. Try not to compare your child with others, instead concentrate on their ability to physically and mentally perform each skill. If your child is registered for the wrong class, transfers will be made only on a space availability basis.

Private Swim Lessons
Our private swimming lessons give swimmers individual, focused attention, allowing them to learn swimming and safety skills quicker than in traditional group classes. Sign up for private swim lessons will begin on May 14. To sign up please fill out the Private Swim Lesson Request Form. Once the form is returned, arrangements for private lessons may be made with the individual instructor through the Parks & Recreation Department. The instructor will call to schedule lessons on an agreeable time and date, starting with the first person on the sign-up list. Payment for private lessons will be due at the beginning of the week prior to the start of the first lesson. No lesson may take place without payment prior to the first lesson.Please choose schedules with instructors wisely. Cancellations must be received more than 24 hours in advance. Lessons cancelled less than 24 hours in advance will still be assessed the entire fee to compensate the instructor for their time. Should an instructor need to cancel, the lesson will be rescheduled with no penalty to the swimmer.
