JCPRD is excited to announce a brand new progressive aquatic lesson program: “Making Waves”
Our goal is to offer a progression of lessons which can take a swimmer from basic level skills to pre-swim team skills.

At the beginning of each session students will be assessed to determine their appropriate level. Students will have a chance to test to another level each day and move forward at their own pace. At the end of each session, students will receive a certificate to show their progress.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE CORRECT LEVEL OF MAKING WAVES CLASS

• Review the skills listed for each class.
• Can your child complete all the skills listed? If so, advance to the next level. If not, enroll in that class.
• Adults and teens should consider Adult Swim Lessons.
