2023 sign ups and wait list information:
I have been able to cut down dramatically on my wait list with year round lessons. You no longer have to wait months or years to be able to get your child started except if you NEED between the hours of 4:30-6:00pm. Those times always have a wait but again, it definitely is not as long as it use to be.
I highly recommend calling/texting as soon as you can to get on the list, even if you don't want to start for a few weeks/months/or even mid summer.
How the wait list works:
Each basic training is 4-6 weeks and refreshers are 1-4 weeks depending on the age and ability of the child. As a child finishes, they move onto maintenance lessons and their daily time slot then opens and is filled by the next child on the wait list. Typically I finish about 15-20 children per week, so that means I can start 15-20 new students per week, so the wait list does move along pretty quickly, and I am never fully booked out for the season. Evening slots however do move very slowly as there are only so many time slots and highly demanded, so those slots sometimes do get booked out pretty far.
How to sign up:
- please read through Pricing/lessons prior to calling as doing so will answer most of your questions about lessons. Also please keep in mind, for babies 2 and under, if you don’t plan to follow through with maintenance lessons or practicing their new skills regularly along with yearly refreshers there is no point of doing the basic training. This is not a one time training and your child can swim and self rescue forever.
- Call or text me at 352-586-6695 (If I don't answer, I am most likely in the pool doing lessons, I will text you back on my break, or in the evening around 8-9:30pm, or on the weekend). Texting is the best way to reach me and don't hesitate to message me back if you don't hear from me within 24 hours in case the message didn't go through.
- I will ask you some questions and answer any questions you might have
- Then I put your child right on the schedule to start or if the time slot you need is not immediately available then you would go on the list (normally 1-3 weeks depending on desired time). When it is available I will text you to let you know.
- Once you are on the schedule with a time slot I will send you the start up info.
- Your child is ready to start!
