Please remember this is for non-swimmers only! We ask that you do not sign up if you have several scheduling conflicts during the week. It is very important that you commit to all 5 days of the program.

Please make sure you choose two time slot preferences on the registration form. Once a time slot has filled up, we will put you in your second choice. Any registration form received after the first choice has filled up will not be put into a class if a second choice is not listed. Wait lists will begin for each time slot once they fill up.
