The answer to this question varies widely. Our personalized lesson plans adapt to meet each swimmer's needs to streamline their progress. We have high expectations for our swimmers and you can expect to see regular progress and improvement. A young swimmer who comes to us comfortable with the water, eager to swim, willingly applies feedback, and follows directions can expect to advance to a swim team within 1 to 2 years of weekly lessons. On the other hand, a swimmer who experiences severe anxiety in the water and has difficulty applying feedback may take several years to progress to a local swim team.
If you need to cancel your appointment, please contact Stacy Smith at (206) 265-2436. We do ask that you give us 24 hours advance notice for cancellation and to avoid a charge for your lesson. You will not be charged this late cancellation fee in the event you have an emergency or if your swimmer is sick. Please note that swimmers with a fever, vomiting, or diarrhea within 24 hours of their session are not allowed in Bellevue Aquatic Center.
Your instructor will give you a brief outline of your swimmer's progress and goals at the conclusion of each session. Additionally, your instructor will provide you with quarterly progress reports, allowing you to track your swimmer's accomplishments.
Absolutely! We do ask that you remain out of the pool during your swimmer's session, unless you have made prior arrangements with your instructor. Please be respectful of other swimmers in the pool who may not want to be inadvertently recorded.
No, we are a mission-driven Limited Liability Cooperation. Our ultimate goal is to become a 501 (c)(3), but as a very small business, we find the process rather daunting. If you have the knowledge and skills to guide us through the process of converting from an LLC to a 501 (c)(3), please contact us.
