July 26, 2015

Swimming Lessons Ideas Program:


Print out rosters

Check existing participant database against current roster

Verify level and group

Assign to instructor

New participants:

Interview parents to determine ability level

Use age as an indicator (avoid putting 5 year olds with 10)

Assign to instructor based on confidence, parent interview, age

Observation during the lesson

Managers and instructors verify the correct placement of swimmers in classes.

If participant needs to switch a class to be more appropriate we move them immediately on the first day
