Do to the OVERWHELMING Positive Response we are forced to stop taking anymore evaluations at this time. If you have already signed up or called YOU ARE STILL ON THE WAITLIST. The waitlist has grown to 2-3 months back log. We have only 4 evaluation/lesson slots available per week. The rest of our slots are filled with existing clientele of independent swimmers.  Please check back in the summer months to see if we have more slots available. Thank you for your interest and support.
