2022 Group Swim Lesson Registration Will OPEN on MONDAY 6/6

The Cardinal Hill Group Swim Lesson Program is designed to help your child enjoy the water and stay safe. All lessons are taught by trained instructors. All sessions last for 2 weeks and include nine 30-minute classes

TIME - 10:30 AM - 11:00 AM

Evaluation Day - Monday, June 20 (10:00 AM - 11:00 AM)

In order to ensure every registered swimmer is placed in the appropriate group, there will be an evaluation day held on Monday, June 20  from 10:00 am to 11:00 am.  If possible, all participants in the program, no matter what session they are registered for, should attend this event.  If your swimmer is unable to attend the evaluation day, then we will place the swimmer in the level indicated during registration and adjust from there during the session. 

The swimmers will be staggered during the hour according to the times below.  Please review what level you believe your child to currently be at, and arrive at the pool at the appropriate window.

  • Level 1 (Pre-Beginner): 10:00 am.  Please arrive by 9:55 am.
  • Level 2 (Beginner): 10:15 am.  Please arrive by 10:10 am.

The per swimmer cost for each session of instruction is $90

Registration and payment is done through our Swimtopia portal, which can be accessed by clicking the links above under each respective session.  If you would like your swimmer to participate in multiple sessions, please fill out multiple registration forms, one for each desired session.

Swimtopia is also the portal used by the Swim and Dive Teams for registration. When you register your swimmer for Group Swim Lessons, under your email address, you are required to place a check the the box next to "Send team-wide email to this address." Currently, Swimtopia does not allow us to segregate our Swim and Dive Team members from our Group Swim Lesson swimmers. Consequently, you may receive emails sent to our Swim and Dive Team families. Simply disregard these emails. We apologize for this inconvenience.

The cut-off date to request a refund is the first day of the swim lesson session for which you have registered your swimmer. 


All questions regarding the Group Lesson Program should be directed to the Program Director, Caitlin Manley at cemanley8@gmail.com.


DO NOT click the above registration links if you are interested in private swim lessons for your swimmer. Instead, you may register for private lessons at the Main Entrance to the pool by entering your swimmer's name and your contact information in the Private Swim Lesson Binder

  • Private swim lessons are provided by certified lifeguards and swim team coaches.
  • You may request a specific lifeguard or coach as an instructor when registering for private lessons. 
  • If the lifeguard or coach agrees to conduct the private lesson(s), they will contact you directly to create a lesson schedule and to determine the cost of each lesson.
  • If the requested lifeguard or coach is unable to provide the private lesson, another available lifeguard or coach will contact you.
  • Unfortunately, private lessons can ONLY be offered to those who are current members.
