During the call, we would like to learn more about you!

• What are your swimming goals?
• What would you or your child like to accomplish in the pool?

We will help you schedule your lessons and complete your registration by sending you a personalized registration link.

We know things come up and schedules change, but since our pool space, insurance and instructors are booked one month in advance, PLEASE MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO ATTEND ALL LESSONS. Make-up swimming lessons are not guaranteed, and refunds are not issued for missed lessons. We can convert your lesson credit into a tax-deductible donation.

I am happy to answer any questions you have about our teaching styles, methods, or any concerns you may have regarding participation in our program. Please note that I am unable to take phone calls during scheduled lessons, as I am in the pool. Any specific questions or calls directed to me may be returned after hours.

We look forward to helping you become One with the Water!
