We do emphasize that for level placement or graduation requires a mastery of skills. Many skills in our program are unique and patented therefore if a child has not been exposed to them they will typically assess lower. It is also true that children who do not regularly practice skills then to lose said skills or regress some in between summers. The Lenny Krayzelburg Swim Academy does offer year round classes to anyone who would like to continue instruction in the fall. Consistent instruction weekly is the key to continued success in swimming and water safety.
