**Please use the following descriptions to determine the skill level that would be appropriate for your child.  Children with no swimming experience should be placed in Level 1.  A swimmer should be able to accomplish ALL the skills described in the previous skill level. For example, in order to be placed in Level 2, a swimmer would need to be capable of performing the skills listed for Level 1, and so on. We will spend a small portion of the first class testing those children whose parents are uncertain what skill level would be appropriate for their child, but most children will be pre-registered in a skill level; therefore, instruction can begin right away.  Some placement adjustments may be needed in the first few classes if parents have either over- or underestimated their child's ability.
