Swim Lessons: Level 5/6


Aquatics -
Summer 2024

If you are a new family to Orono Community Education’s swimming lessons, we encourage you to schedule a swimming pre-assessment to determine the best level for your swimmer.
Pre-assessments take place at the Orono pool. Instructors will guide your swimmer through a set of skills in a 15-minute period.

Summer pre-assessments will take place in early March. 

  • Fall 2023 pre-assessments will take place in early August. 
  • Contact Tara St. Martin to schedule a pre-assessment at tara.st.martin@orono.k12.mn.us.
  • Note: Attending a pre-assessment does not guarantee a spot in lessons. Spots fill quickly.

  • Please limit registration to one swim camp per child for Summer.
