Swim Team or Swim Lessons?
Swim team is a competitive swimming sport, not swim lessons. Please use good judgment on your child’s ability as to whether he/she is capable of participating. After a swim evaluation by the coaches which entails swimming one distinguishable stroke 25 meters without assistance or stopping on the first day of practice, it may be recommended that your child enroll in swim lessons.
