Swim Lessons and Junior Swim Team Information (2019)
Maplewood Swim Club offers swim lessons and our junior swim team program to our community. These programs are open to both non-members and members of the club. Please spread the word that lessons are available to non-club members!
Registration: May 25 and June 1 from 2 to 4 pm at Maplewood, and throughout the summer. Enrollment is limited so please register early. If you have any questions regarding swim lessons, please contact Karen Dean, Gena Kannengieszer, or Laura Pickford at email@example.com.
SWIM LESSONS: $55/child per session for members $70/child per session for non-members Swim lessons will have weekend session and weekday sessions available for children ages 4 and up. There are 8 lessons per session. They are intended to teach the fundamentals of swimming, stroke development and encourage pool safety. Lessons will be taught by American Red Cross certified lifeguards who have previous experience in teaching swim lessons. Please note: if your child previously participated in our junior swim team program and has aged out (over 8 years old), he/she is not eligible to enroll in swim lessons as this program is intended for beginners (including beginners over 8 years old).
Weekday session times: 10 am-10:45 am for ages 4 or 5 and 10:45 am-11: 30 am for ages 6 and up.
JUNIOR SWIM TEAM
$105/child for members
$140 per child for nonmembers
Junior swim team is a weekday program for children ages 8 and under. This program is intended for children who are more advanced than regular lessons and promotes readiness for the regular swim team. There is a strong focus on improving and refining swimming skills. These swimmers do not compete in any meets in our swim league (some members may be asked to participate in a home meet), but will swim in a junior team mini-meet at the end of the session.
(Please note – non-members may participate in the junior swim team program. However, if you want to join the regular swim team, you must be a member of the Maplewood Swim Club. Also, club members who participated in the 2018 junior swim team and earned their low/high bands or members who earned their low/high bands in 2018 have the skill level for the regular swim team and are strongly encouraged to join the regular swim team.)
Junior Swim Team Program: Weekday practice begins June 24 through July 19
@ 11:30 am – 12:15 pm. June 24 is a testing and grouping day. No practice 7-4.
There are no make-up classes or refunds for missed practices or lessons. There will be make-up times for lessons cancelled due to inclement weather. If your child is enrolled in swim lessons or junior team and decides not to participate, you must submit a refund request via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This type of refund request will be prorated.
