Recreation Complex Programs
We are proud to offer you the chance to participate in a revamped preschool program consisting of 8 levels including Starfish, Duck, Sea Turtle, Sea Otter, Salamander, Sunfish, Crocodile and Whale. Sea Otter was added to provide a better transition level for swimmers from Sea Turtle as they move to greater independence, as well as making it a more manageable level for new swimmers. Participants will enter Sea Otter when they have completed Sea Turtle or it is their first time in lessons. For those swimmers who are currently registered in Salamander they will continue to stay in that level until it is complete and continue to work their way through the preschool program.
