Level Placement Guide

Putting your child in the appropriate level is critical for their success. Please use the swim level descriptions and the following resources to determine your child's swim level BEFORE registering them for a swim class.

Free Swim Level Assessment

To reserve a spot, go to the online catalog and find the Level Assessment under the "Swim Lesson" tab.  Drop-in participants will be accepted - a registration must be completed at the facility before a participant enters the water.

Please note: Level Assessment may be cancelled in the event of thunder or lightning.

How it Works: Each swimmer will be in the water for a few minutes one-on-one with one of our Water Safety Instructors. The instructor will ask them to perform various skills based on their age and comfort in the water. Once the evaluation is over, the instructor will recommend a level for your swimmer based on what they observed.

Come Prepared: Make sure each swimmer who is getting evaluated comes in their bathing suit and brings a towel. You do not need to bring a flotation device.

Note: If enrollment is made into a class that is not at the child's ability the Aquatic Office cannot guarantee that space in another class will be available. If you are unsure of the appropriate level we recommend taking the swim level assessment.
