Class Level Assessement
To place your child in the proper swimming environment, The Pool School curriculum is divided into eight class levels. 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. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND All 3, 4 & 5 year old children, take a Level 1 class, if they have not had swim lessons previously.
The Pool School parent/tot class prepares children for group lessons and is a great beginning to their swimming education. Parents are provided a chance to spend precious one-on-one moments with their child while teaching entry-level swim skills and safety.
Skills listed under each level are those necessary to begin the class.
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.
Level 2 Requirements: Plays well in the water, blows bubbles, will submerge head under water.

Level 4 Requirements: Swim with arms out of water and face in the water, without flotation devices.
