Swim Lesson Frequently Asked Questions

  • When are swim lessons offered?
  • How do I sign up my children for lessons?
  • How do I know my child’s level?
    • For members who have previously been in lessons, your child’s last lesson passed will be available on your member information. New students who don’t know their level should try to stop by the pool for an evaluation through out the summer. Ask for a manager, and we will get your child evaluated. You can also talk to Robin to provide the skill level your child knows already, and she can place them that way. If during the first week of classes the instructor finds the child is in the wrong level (either too easy or too challenging) Robin will recommend to you that a switch should be made and can help make the arrangements to make the switch as seamless as possible.
  • How long is a lesson each day?
    • The length of each lesson depends on the level. Parent tot through level 3 lessons are 25 minutes long, and levels 4-BWS are 40 minutes long. Each session is two weeks long, five days a week.
  • When should the child be ready for swim lessons?
    • The child should be ready for each day’s lesson about 5-10 minutes before the lesson starts.
  • When does testing take place?
    • Testing takes place every day during the second week of lessons. It is crucial that the child attends during testing, as most times instructors will only test a given skill on one day.
  • How to provide feedback to instructors / instructor coordinator?
    • We are looking for feedback on the lesson program. You can contact Robin Hartung via e-mail at swimlessons@highpointswimclub.com or at the pool anytime. Robin will also be on deck during lesson times as well.
