All assessments at All Star Aquatics are taken to ensure your child is swimming with those of similar ability and we assure that each swimmer will continually be monitored for any further assessments or advice. We are 100% focused on improving each individual at All Star Aquatics and with the understanding you only want the best for your child, we also appreciate your trust in our decisions and suggestions.

Please note that all levels are chosen on not only the child’s ability as a swimmer but also the capability of following instructions as part of a group. Age has little to no bearing.
