There will be time to discuss progress of swimmers after the two week session.  There will also be an evaluation at the end of the session to inform the swimmers what the next step should be. (move up a level, or remain in the same level)

Sign-ups will be available via Sign-up Genius. Please sign up accordingly and come to the time slot and group that you registered for. Any lessons that you miss cannot be made up or alternatively made up in a different time.

The sign-up website is: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/904044EA9AF2EA46-group

If the schedules do not fit your time frame or fill up too quickly, I recommend either organizing private lessons with a swim coach or lifeguard of your choosing, or asking if one of the coaches can set up a private group lesson on their own schedule and work something out.

Similarly, I know there were hopes for a weekend group lesson group, but I could not get a consistent time commitment from the coaches. If weekends work best for your schedule, I suggest you schedule a private lesson or organize a private group lesson with a coach when available.

The Swim Instructors will be Jon Leong, Megan Grant, Ellen Rawson, Josh Hafkin, Andrew Valentine, Matthew Mittl, and Rachel Vistica.

Again, My sincerest apologies for the delay in information, please bear with us as we try to get our lesson program floating.
