SEALS and Private Swim Lesson Programs (see document)
SEALS (Students Earn A Lifelong Skill) is a group swim lesson program for kids ages 3-12 years old. The program runs for five months starting in March and lasts until July. Each month is a session, which is three weeks of lessons on alternate days (i.e., Mon and Wed, Tues and Thurs). The last week of the month is reserved for makeup lessons if they are cancelled during the month. Make up lessons can only be offered if BWAC cancels lessons due to unforeseen circumstances.

SEALS takes place during normal hours of operation at BWAC. Registration for March, April & May will be the first Saturday in February and registration for June & July will be the first Saturday in May. Registration is first come, first served and space is limited due to the popularity of the program.
