Please alert instructors before the first day of class if there are any special needs or situations, which may assist us to enhance your child's learning experience.

Placing your swimmer in an inappropriate class level for their ability can hinder their class experience. If needed, you may be asked to move levels to better suit your child. There is no guarantee that the new level with be at the same time or with the same instructor. If there is no room in other classes for re-placement, Bentonville Parks and Recreation holds the right to remove your child from the group swim lesson.
