Swim Together

We offer online registration for classes. ALL NEW students except Level 1 require an evaluation by our Aquatics Department staff. This ensures your child is placed at the appropriate swim class level. An evaluation does not guarantee class will have an opening. Contact [email protected] to schedule an evaluation.

Please note that refunds will be subject to our administrative fees (see our Policies and Information page).
