SWIM LESSONS PROGRAM @ TDFCC
Parent-child classes · preschool classes · grade school KIDS sWIM LESSONS
Small class size and individual attention are the cornerstones of our Kids Aquatics programs. Our instructor to student ratio is 5:1 for all preschool and beginner levels and 6:1 for our upper levels. Small class size allows more hands-on instruction as well as tailoring each class to the needs of individual students.
Our goal is to place every child interested in swim lessons into a class. We may add, combine, move and remove classes to accommodate as many requests as possible. TDFCC members will have priority in placement. Please pre-register and pay for each session at the front desk. If classes are full, please join the waiting list and we will work to place as many students as possible. If changes are required to your time and class, you will be notified no later than the day before the session begins.
Please make sure all non-participating children remain at your side at all times. Parents are responsible for direct supervision of students up to and immediately following scheduled lesson times. Parents of all children not old enough to use the restroom without supervision must remain in the pool viewing area during the lesson. Non-Member participation is limited to lessons only and not use of the facilities. There are NO MAKE-UPS for missed classes.
