Wondering about appropriate level?

It is important for children to be in the correct level. Please don’t guess. If your child is new to our program, or you can’t remember what level they should be in, a quick e-mail to aquatics@rcymca.org will get you the answer generally within 24 hours. You may be asked to bring your child in for an in-the-water evaluation. To eliminate the risk of your child being removed from the wrong level, with no spots available in the correct level/time of your choice, please be sure you are signing your child up for the correct level.

Please refer to Membership Policies page for details on our transfer/cancellation policy. Make ups are not provided if your child is absent or if we are closed due to unforeseen circumstances.
 
All preschool classes are 30 minutes in length.

Please use the wait list if the day/time you want is full - we do our best to accommodate.
