Swim Stroke Assessment

Everyone has unique goals when it comes to swimming. Whether it's to swim well enough to be safe in and around water, learn basic swim skills for fitness or increase speed and endurance, we can help.

Depending on your skill level, the swim stroke assessment may be used to:

  • Determine your overall goals and current swim level
  • Identify key changes you can make to improve efficiency, speed and rhythm of your stroke
  • Determine your placement in a group lesson setting
  • Recommend more extensive lessons or training
  • Recommend drills to improve your stroke
  • Measure improvement using 100 to 500 meter time assessment or stroke count

If you purchase a private swim lesson package after your assessment, your assessment fee will be refunded to you.
