Level Placement & Testing Procedures

Level Placement

Atlantis Swim Academy offers free swim evaluations for all prospective students and customers. These evaluations can be scheduled online or at the Front Desk and usually last anywhere from 10-15 minutes depending on the number of swimmers involved in the test. Using our skill levels, our instructors will place children in the proper level based on their current skills. After placement, you are free to check in at the Front Desk to check all available classes for the relevant levels.

Testing Procedures

Our instructors periodically update skills during the month, however, testing is always done during the 3rd week of the month. There should be no rushing through the learning process as acquired swim skills will not be permanent unless learned over time. It is our aim to provide the most up to date and accurate skill information as possible regarding each swimmer that comes to class but we must balance this practice with the need of our instructors to provide distraction free skill instruction and attention. Each level has about 5-8 skills we want them to master before graduating. Once they've mastered the skills and they're ready for the next level, we'll let you know the availability of classes in the next level. You will get an e-mail from our friendly office staff after one week. During your next scheduled lesson you will get a SWIM AWARD CERTIFICATE for your swimmer showing their progress and celebrating their achievement. They will be moved to the next level at the beginning of the next monthly cycle. If skills have not been updated or you are wondering about the status of your swimmer please feel free to approach the coach after classes or leave a note at the front desk. We pride ourselves on our open communication and will be happy to assist in any way possible.
