Time vs. Comfort – advice from the experts!

Parents – we know your time is valuable, but so is your child’s comfort level in the water. Please register your children in the appropriate swim levels, as recommended by an instructor. If you are simply choosing the best time slot for your schedule, you are not giving your child the best opportunity for success. Not sure what level is right?
