2021 Swim Lesson

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.
 
Lesson Cancellations
There are no make-up lessons held due to inclement weather, unless there are less than 6 total sessions held. Classes could be cancelled due to the following reasons: 1) moderate to heavy rain, 2) thunder OR lightening, 3) air   temperature below 65°F, 4) mechanical or facility issues. Every effort will be taken to make decisions on cancellations one half hour before each lesson starting time. Weather can be unpredictable and changes quickly, please call the Parks & Rec Office for cancellation information at (262) 284-5881.
