 Swim Lesson Information

The park district will follow the American Red Cross guidelines for all swim levels. Please review the description of the various levels to ensure a positive experience. Stingray Bay provides lessons based on skill level, not age. If your child participated in swim lessons at Stingray Bay in 2012, there are records of which levels he/she completed and whether or not he/she passed. Please note that each child will have different abilities and will learn at his/her own pace. The instructors and manager will do their best to accommodate each participant’s skill level.

Any child not toilet trained MUST wear an aqua diaper at all times. Aqua diapers are reusable and available for purchase at Stingray Bay ($8). “Little Swimmer’s” are not acceptable.

Lessons are instructed in cool and windy weather and are only canceled due to severe weather. The pool water is kept at 82 degrees, but may vary due to weather conditions.

Make-ups will be held only if the park district cancels. No make-ups will be issued for sickness or vacations. If weather is questionable and you are unsure if lessons are being held, please call (847) 515-7665 no sooner than 30 minutes before your lesson is scheduled. To avoid busy phone lines, an update will be available on the home page of the park district at www.huntleyparks.org.

Parents are asked to sit in the concession pavilion or in the grass behind the designated flags during your child’s lesson.

Like a school setting, children perform better when they are able to give full attention to their instructors.

Under no circumstances will parents and their siblings be able to wait on the pool deck.

Parents are invited to the pool deck on the last day of lessons to take pictures and see what your child has learned.
