​​​​​​​New Swimmer Assessment


The first step in joining our Island Swim Skills Team program is to schedule an assessment with one of our coaches. To schedule an assessment, please head to the link below! If you are unable to make any of the available times, please email one of our Island Swim Skills Team leaders (Ashley at SCP, Erin at JDF) and we will do our best to accomodate you at another time. Assessments for the 2023/2024 season will resume when our programs start mid September! 

Please keep in mind that your child must be able to comfortably swim 25m unassisted in order to be able to join our precompetitive program. Alternatively, we reccomend our lesson programs if they are not currently at this level of swimming.
