2017 Swim Registration

I'll be putting the sessions Jan. 13th (around 7pm).   I'll send out an email when they are ready.  If you do have a change of plans for the summer and you are unable to make the swimming lessons you signed up for, please go back into this site and take them off the list.  I've had many who can't get into swim lessons because I don't find out a child is not taking until the first day of the swimming lesson they were signed up for.  I'm not going to post the list until Jan. 13th.  Please only sign up if you know you can make it.  If the class is full, don't add other rows to the table. If the class is full at the time you would like, put their name on as waiting under the table or class you would like.

In order to teach your children how to swim, I have a 6 student policy.  If you sign your child up for a Pre-1 or Pre-2A, please only signup 5 rows.  (I try to catch that if I see a pre class.)  If someone drops off the list, I can then call you or you can also check the blog to see if there are any openings available.   Thanks for your patience.   Sincerely. .Ann

Click on the Home page, choose which session you would like, time, & level (if there is no level on a time, you can make that time whatever class you would like). Then type in your child's name, age, and your phone #.    It will save automatically.

Thanks for all of your interest in signing your child/children up for swimming.  I love teaching them a simple skill that all children should have.  This year marks the 34th year I've been teaching swimming lessons.  Time flies when I'm having fun.  I've enjoyed each and every year.

If you would like private lessons you may get in touch with Emilèe to see if there is a good time that will work for you both. Please send her an email then end of May.....  She charges $20 a half hour lesson.  autumnvolley@gmail.com
