Register for classes
It is important to review all sections of the Swim Parent Handbook before enrolling your child in swim lessons. To help determine what level a child should be enrolled in, ask yourself “can my child perform all of the skills listed in this class?” If the answer is yes, then enroll your child in the next level. If the answer is no, then that is the level in which they should be enrolled in.

WEATHER CONTINGENCY PLAN FOR SWIM LESSONS

The City of College Station will utilize the Aquatics rainout line for Swim Lessons. Participants can check the daily status by calling 979.764.3732. If it is not thundering or lightening and lifeguards can see to the bottom of the pool, lessons will go on as planned. If it begins to thunder or lightening or lifeguards cannot see to the bottom of the pool due to rain, lessons will be cancelled. If heavy rain or lightening occurs during a session and it is safe to stay on property, participants will be moved to safety lessons in the lobby at Adamson Lagoon and Cindy Hallaran pool until the weather clears. This will be the same procedure at Thomas pool as long as the weather allows.

If a session is rained out, rain checks will be issued on the last day of the program for each day cancelled. The rain check will be attached to your final certificates. This rain check is worth $5 and may be used to sign-up for additional sessions in 2018.
