Enjoy quality swim instruction in Albuquerque Academy's Natatorium pool! Grouped by skill level, swimmers benefit from an instructor-to-swimmer ratio of 1:5 for stations 1-3 and 1:8 for staions 4 and up. Supervisors and lifeguards are fully certified through the American Red Cross. Instructors will follow the Swim America guidelines and curriculum.(Due to limited enrollment, students may register for one lesson per session.) Lessons are 30 minutes each day, offered in a two-week session. PLEASE SEND YOUR CHILD TO SWIM LESSONS EVERY DAY WITH A SWIMSUIT, TOWEL, AND GOGGLES. *PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU DO NOT SELECT SESSIONS THAT HAVE CONFLICTING DATES. DOING SO WILL NOT ONLY DELAY YOUR REGISTRATION BUT WILL ALSO AFFECT CAPACITIES FOR OTHER STUDENTS.* __________________________________________________________________________ Teacher Bio: Carolyn Snyder teaches Adapted Physical Education with APS and serves as the Summer Session Aquatics Co-Director.
