    During early bird sign ups, you may only participate during your current time timeslot.        (example: if you have lessons at 10 am you must show up at that time or later to sign up.  You may not show up at 9 am if you are currently enrolled in lessons at 10 am)

    A:        If you choose to participate in Early Bird Sign-Ups you may sign up for your current time or an earlier time slot if available.  You may not sign up for a later time slot, as it is our goal to give EVERYONE the opportunity to keep his or her current time slot.

    Q:        What if I am currently enrolled at 9:00 am, but I want to sign up for 11:30 am lessons?

    A:        If you are not keeping your current time slot and choose to move to a later timeslot, you must show up to the swim lesson sign-ups that evening.  Residents can sign up between             6:30-8:30 and Nonresidents between 7:30-8:30
