When do current swimmers find out their new level?

At the end of the season in lessons 16 through 19 swimmers will be skill tested and the coach will create a report card for them assigning them their level for the next session. You will be sent your report card prior to the 20th, which is your last lesson. At your last lesson you can then ask any questions you may have to the coach in person should you wish. ​​​​​​


Is there any fundraising necessary in Mini O's?
