FAQs

How does this work? FAQs

Safety Before Skill specializes in private recurring lessons that meet once weekly for 30 minutes with an assigned coach.

This once weekly model is great for over-scheduled families and allows swim lessons to become part of the normal routine, much like learning to read or write all year. It also allows more families access to the lesson program. The private lesson model also allows for more progress in each lesson, as the swimmer is in the water the entire time, not sitting on the wall waiting for a turn.

The 30-minute private lesson includes time to educate parents on dry land regarding safety protocols as well as a daily update on progression. Coaches keep a log of each swimmer noting their level, strengths and weaknesses.

What is the schedule?

Our schedule changes 3 times per year: Spring Term, Summer Term and Fall Term. The Summer Term is 10 weeks long, from June 3 – Aug 10 for 10 WEEKS total.

We will then take a week off for back to school, publish a brand new schedule for the Fall Term, and you can re-enroll.

In addition to once weekly packages, in the summer, we also offer twice weekly packages and some intensives that meet multiple times in a week over a sorter period of time. This provides flexibility around vacations and summer camps.

Swimming more than once weekly does not necessarily result in faster progress each lesson, but it does allow families to get more work done in a shorter period of time.

We only offer 3 group classes and they are very specific.

1. Parent & Me is a group class for ages 4 months – 3 years and requires a parent or caregiver in the water. The group class is excellent for little ones with separation anxiety and has a strong safety focus for parents. However, infants and toddlers are welcome to enroll in private lessons also, and the parent may get in with them as often as they like.


2. Club Swim is a group classes for swimmers. To be eligible, the participant must be able to swim 50 yards of at least one stroke and perform a survival back float in deep water. This class prepares kids ages 6 -12 for a swim team experience.


3. Aquatic Attitude is a course for fearful, beginner adults. Adults are also welcome to book private lessons and we recommend Coaches Theresa, Karen and Hannah for adults.

Each of those group classes has its own button on the gray toolbar above.

What is the cost?

Each private lesson is $37.25 each, regardless of how often you swim. Tuition for most summer term packages is payable 5 lessons at a time for $186.25 per month over two months.

Group classes are $97.50 per month on auto draft.

How do I enroll?

Online enrollment is best for making sure you get the day and time you like the most. To enroll, select the package that works best for you. The day and time are listed first, along with the name of the coach.

All of our coaches carry the same certifications and use the same lesson plans and curriculum. However, some coaches only teach certain ages or skill levels and you may see that noted in the title of the course also.

Packages that last more than 6 weeks will require 50% payment at the time of registration and we will auto draft the other half on June 1st or July 1st. Intensives and packages of 6 lessons or less, require payment in full at the time of registration.

We limit semi-private to participants that are ages 4 and above only and they may not be more than 2 years apart in age. They must also be similar in skill level. Semi-private must be arranged by telephone. The cost for Semi-private is $25 per swimmer, per lesson.
