Frequently Asked Questions
How much do lessons cost?
We are happy to send you pricing along with our next available session dates and times. Please contact us for more information. When sending us a message, please include how many children you would like to sign up along with their ages.
Will my child retain what they learn?
Swim lessons are like any learned skill. The more you practice, the more you retain and the better you get. We highly recommend swimmers take two to three maintenance lessons throughout the year. Maintenance lessons are two days a week.
What if my child dosen't like to get their face wet?
Being able to put your face in the water is a vital part of learning to swim. That is why we get that out of the way the very first day. Once the swimmer grows in confidence, it becomes a non issue.
Where are lessons held?
During the warmer months May through September all lessons are held in Prattville | 539 Jasmine Trail.
During the cooler months October through April we teach indoors with heated pools. Montgomery | 1546 East Ann St Prattville | 600 East Main St
Do you guarntee your lessons?
We stress the survival part of our lessons. If your child is unable to float on their back unassisted after the initial six weeks, we will continue to swim them at no additional charge until we are confident in their ability to float.
What if we miss a lesson?
We highly encourage you to not miss any lessons, if at all possible. However, we understand that sometimes 'life' happens. During each session we have two makeup days. They are typically held on Friday's.
Do parents get in the water during lessons?
Towards the end of each session Jeffrey lets parents get in the water to show them how they can practice with their child.
