Fall Lessons CRC 

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.

Level Prerequisites

Use our Level Prerequisite (PDF) questions to determine the correct level for your child.
