Request Form

Step 2.Parent / guardian will be notified within 3 working days.

If there is no availability, requests are held in order of receipt and assigned instructors as schedules allow. Staff will inform the parent /guardian as to the length of the wait list.  

If there is availability, payment will be collected. Credit cards accepted include: MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express.


After confirmation of payment, instructor is assigned.

Instructor will call, text, email to schedule days and times for lessons.

If an agreement cannot be reached, the form is returned to the Aquatics Supervisor who then assigns a new instructor and this step begins again.

Step 3.Lessons occur based upon agreed time

Can I schedule lessons before I pay?

No, like other Park and Recreation programs, payment is required upon registration.  The Welcome Desk sends confirmation of payment to aquatics with completed form for the assigned instructor to schedule lessons based on participant and instructor availability.  


What if I have a specific instructor or type of instructor that is preferred?

On the request for lesson form, there is the ability to request a specific instructor.  In addition, there are questions that allow you to provide expectations, goals, fears or preferences for instructors. Staff tries to accommodate specific requests, but there is no guarantee requests will be granted. 


How many days a week are lessons scheduled?

Scheduling is determined based upon the instructor and participant availability.  There are no set times, dates, or minimum lessons/time frame in this program.


After the completion of the first 4 lessons, can additional lessons be scheduled?

Yes, if interested in continuing lessons, confirm with the instructor their availability. Purchase an additional lesson package from the Welcome Desk.  Upon completion of payment, Welcome Desk staff will send a confirmation notice to Aquatic staff so lessons can continue with the instructor.
