    Level Descriptions:

    It is important to enroll your child in the level you feel is most appropriate for their abilities. If you are unsure which level is most appropriate for your child, we encourage you to register for the Preschool Aquatics Tryout. This a free evaluation session where one of our American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors will perform a skills evaluation with your child to determine which lesson level they would be best suited for.
