What is the lesson program at Overlee Community Association?
It is an Overlee developed swim lesson program that caters to swimmers of all different levels of ability and comfort with trained and talented instructors. Although each class has a variety of skills that are mastered, each class has a clearly defined skill or skill set that a swimmer must be able to demonstrate in order to continue to the next level. These are called Benchmark Goals. In contrast, Intermediary Goals are intended to celebrate the mastery of more than half of the skills needed to move forward. Our swimmer range in age from nine months to ten years old. We begin with comfort and submersion and continue through breaststroke and butterfly clinics. It is a perfect option for swimmers who want to develop their stroke, enjoy swimming, perhaps are preparing for a swim club or swimming laps with family, and above all want to have fun.
What are the different levels of the program?
Please visit the Group Lesson Levels webpage more details about the levels.

A Session of group lessons costs $60 for Members, and $75 for Non-Members. There are no refunds once you have been placed in a class, but we will not charge you if we are unable to place your swimmer in a class.
How do I find out if my swimmer has been placed in a class?
The rosters of the class schedule will be posted in the Breezeway at the pool, and will be emailed to families who register. Rosters will not be posted on the website due to concerns with privacy and child safety. You can also check your Online Customer Account.
