For our group lessons we require that students be at least 3 years of age or older. Children ages 3-5 years old will be place in our Pre-School level classes and children 6 and up will be placed in our Youth level classes. Teens and adults will be placed in our adult lessons. For children 6 months to 3 years old we offer Parent-Tot classes where both you and your child get into the water.

Placement Tests

If your child has taken lessons outside of the AMG Swim School program or has been out of our program for more than 3 months we will require a placement test before sign up. Placement test are Mondays and Tuesdays at 4:55pm and Monday, Wednesdays at 7pm. Placement tests are free and only take a few minutes. Please show up at least 10 minutes in advance so we can have an instructor in the water for your placement test, if you show up later than the scheduled time we cannot guarantee you will get a placement test that day.

Parent/Tot Swim Lessons

For children 6 months to 3 years old we offer Parent-Tot classes where both you and your child get into the water. This class will help your infant or todler become comfortable in the water. The instructor will teach you holding positions, blowing bubbles, jumps and even how to put your child under the water properly. Classes are on Saturdays and are based on demand. You can register for this class by the month. We do limit one parent to being in the water at a time. You are more than welcome to switch off halfway through the class. We also require that children who wear diapers outside of the water wear water diapers while in the pool.
