After the final lesson, he provides a recommendation for your child’s next class level as well.

Classes are kept small so that each swimmer receives ample group
and one-on-one instruction time throughout lessons. The topics covered will align with overall group ability. And during one-on-one time, Coach Roger will focus on the skills your child specifically needs to master within the broader objective of the lesson. Class levels can also be taken more than once for skill mastery.
