Frequently asked questions

What if my child is not a good swimmer?

All participants in our yoth programs are assessed for their swimming ability on their first day of their session. Based on that assessment, they are assigned to an area of the pool with an appropriate level of supervision and guidance. Our groups range from “non-swimmer” to “advanced,” and special areas of the pool and dedicated staff are set up for each group.
