How Many Instructors are in the Pool with a Class

Unlike many schools which put up to 10 instructors teaching separate classes in the pool at one time- our maximum is 3 instructors per pool period.  This hands on method provides less distraction and more interaction between your child and his Instructor speeding the learning process.
