Class Levels: Ages 2 and Up

Header Image for Class Levels: Ages 2 and Up ProSwim Academy

PRO Swim Academy places children in small classes by their second birthday, first according to skill, then with other children their age. We encourage you to read about each level below and read our skill boards in the facility to see exactly what each level teaches. These levels are for children ages 2 and up. If your child is under the age of 2, please visit the Swim Babies page. Class is held once a week for 30 minutes and there is always 4 or fewer students per class.

Lessons are $84 per Month
