    Cost for Summer Swim is $110.00 for each child.  Classes meet Monday through Thursday for two weeks, and classes are limited to 16 children with five teachers, a lifeguard and a supervisor. In classes where four to 15-year-olds are together, children will be grouped according to age and skill level.  Please note:  Our policy is that parents remain off the pool deck and balcony until the last day of class. Cancellations must be made at least two weeks before the beginning of a class. No refunds will be issued if cancellations are received after this time.

    New this year is the opportunity for girls ages 11 to 15, who have passed at least Level 5, to take Synchronized Swimming.  Classes are not set at this time. If you are interested in this class, please email Dollie Brice at dgbrice@samford.edu.
