Swim Lesson Information

Choosing the Correct Level

PCC offers youth lessons starting at 6 mos - 15 yrs. If swimmers can do the listed skills (below) with ease, enroll in the next level; if not, stay. Repeating a level is great because skill development is individualized. Call the aquatics office to schedule a complimentary swim assessment if you are unsure. Register at least 7 days in advance to avoid low enrollment cancellation.


Contact the Aquatics Coordinator, Jenna Dickman at jdickman@missionks.org or by phone at 913.722.8207 for questions regarding Swim Lessons, Private Swim Lessons or general pool concerns.


All skills are performed with support from the instructor, level is complete when participant has passed each skill independently.
