  20. 20. The Learn-to-Swim program is based on the guidelines set up by the American RedCross. We have grouped the ages for the classes based upon our knowledge of abilitiesof young swimmers. Although your child may have passed all of the preschool classes,they will not be allowed into the higher Level classes until age 6. One of the manydifferences in skills between Preschool and Level classes is distance/endurance andstroke development. Most preschoolers are not able to swim the required distances in theLevel classes. We suggest that even though your child has completed the Preschoolclasses, he/she should continue to take the highest Level class or work on your own withthem to increase endurance/distance in the various strokes. Requirements for Preschooldistance is 5 yards and the distance for the Level classes is 15 yards.Edora Pool Ice Center (EPIC) 1801 RiversideMulberry Pool (MP) 424 West MulberryDrop-In Swim TestSwim testing allows swim staff to evaluate your child (age 6+) on their swimming abilityfor proper swim level placement.Mulberry Pool Wednesday 4:00-8:00 PMEPIC Saturday Noon-5:00 PM.n Prior to registration, we encourage you to have your child tested for properplacement (see schedule above)n If the class you wish to register for is filled, you may place your name on a paidwaiting list no later than one week prior to the start of the class.
