Swimming Lessons Ideas Program:
Print out rosters
Check existing participant database against current roster
Verify level and group
Assign to instructor
Interview parents to determine ability level
Use age as an indicator (avoid putting 5 year olds with 10)
Assign to instructor based on confidence, parent interview, age
Observation during the lesson
Managers and instructors verify the correct placement of swimmers in classes.
If participant needs to switch a class to be more appropriate we move them immediately on the first day
Print out rosters: Camps
Line up all participants on the side of the pool.
Have 5 -6 swim instructors in the water ready to test swimmers
1-2 managers with a binder on the deck, watching each participant do a swim test
Test: Go underwater, freestyle, backstroke, free breathing, fly swim, breaststroke swim
Take all data from first day and that evening separate into classes for Day 2.
Registration based on levels specific to certain days/times:
Level 1: Monday 3:00pm
Level 2: Monday 3:30pm
Level 3: Monday 4:00pm
Instructor and swim manager verifies that parents chose the correct level for their participants. Immediate move, if possible ( Level 1 at 3pm and Level 2 at 3pm) or move next week to appropriate level on the offered day/time.
