Swim Lessons

I offer all Splash Water Safety swim lessons mentioned on the Services page. Advanced scheduling is required to secure swim lessons.

Because my swim lessons are in high demand, early registration is required to secure your spot. I teach everyone from parent/child (adult with 6 month-3 years of age child) to senior citizens and all skill levels. Visit the Services page for more information about classes.

Note to Parents

It’s that time again! Swim lesson season is upon us, and I’m super excited to start the season at my pool near Publix in Chelsea. If you are interested in enrolling in swim lessons for the summer of 2019, please start your registration here with our new streamlined registration process. If you want lessons in June and July, I encourage you to book now. Both sessions currently are listed. The August schedule is not confirmed, so I’m not sure yet if we’ll have lessons in August. I’ll post more about that at a later date.

New Registration Process

All open time slots on the schedule are set up for private lessons to book and pay right away, which is required to secure your reservation. Already scheduled semiprivate and group classes also are ready to book and pay right away.

Open Time Slots for Semiprivate or Group

If you are requesting semiprivate or group lessons in an open time slot and your family or group are ready to schedule, please follow these steps.

  1. Reserve the time.
  2. Send me an email about your request. I’ll make adjustments to the class.
  3. In the meantime, please complete registration for the additional students as soon as possible.
  4. I’ll enroll them into your class once they are registered. (If they do not register in a timely manner, you may lose your spot.)
  5. I’ll send an email to those enrolled. Everyone can log on to the parent portal to see their enrollment details and payment or balance.
  6. If payments cannot be processed, those who have not paid will be dropped and those on the wait list will have an opportunity to take those spots.

Wait List

If you really want a time and it is already booked, feel free to join the wait list. If the current reservations fall through, I’ll work down the wait lists to fill them.

Discounts Available

BAMOM:
If you are a member of BAMOM (Birmingham Area Mothers of Multiples), save $5 per child.

Payments must be completed to reserve your spot.
Discounts cannot be combined except BAMOM.

Schedule

I’ve had lots of requests for lessons and have a limited schedule due to gymnastics including summer classes and gymnastics camp and not traveling this summer, so please reserve as soon as possible if you truly want to be on the 2019 schedule with Splash Water Safety. Swim lessons are happening on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the morning, late afternoon, and evening. Morning classes include Wednesdays, as well, due to the gymnastics camp schedule.

Our Pool

For those of you who may not know, we installed a spacious pool in our backyard. Fall of 2018, we added the first phase of our deck including a roof over it. We’re adding a ramp leading up to the deck and fencing around the deck for this summer. We’ve already added a nice set of wrought iron furniture, too. I’m excited to welcome you back this summer and appreciate everyone who joined us at our pool in July, August, and September last year.

Updates

As we get the pool ready for this year, I’ll post updates on our Facebook page, so feel free to follow us. You’ll see weather updates, class info, events, water safety tips, and more there, as well. Plus, you can see updates and videos showing our build-out process.

 

Water Safety Classes for Parents

Additionally, I may be offering some parent water safety classes in both comprehensive and summarized formats for you to choose from. If you’re interested, be sure to comment on my Facebook post or send me an email.

I look forward to working with many of you again this summer! And if I don’t see you, I hope you and your family have a safe and super fun summer!
