2024 New Student and Waitlist Registration

Welcome, and thank you for making water safety a priority for your child(ren)! 

Please complete the following registration form (one per child). The more flexible you are with your time availability and location, the sooner you will be added to the schedule. Because our swim schedule is performance-based your child will receive a target month/date to start. If it is not possible to place you at your requested time/location, you will be offered an alternative. If you choose not to accept the alternate, your child will be placed in the queue and you will be notified as soon as an opening becomes available. Sometimes there are cancellations and early completions which will move everyone sooner in the queue.  

If your child has swam with another "survival" swim program there are a few 3-4 week refresher sessions available .

If you have additional questions, concerns, or would like to discuss lessons in further detail, please call or email. 407-252-7159  tina@littleotterswimacademy.com
The following form will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.  If there is a chance you might get interrupted along the way, please consider the "save and return" option.  It will time out if left open. There are many required fields. Please don't leave any of these fields blank, as the submission will be returned. At the end of the form, you will be redirected to Paypal for payment (if applicable).  Your registration will be complete when your payment is processed. If you have trouble getting to Paypal please call or email me and I will send the link manually. Some operating systems will glitch here. You will receive a confirmation email with further instructions on what's next!
Thank you for trusting me to teach your child(ren) to swim and be safer in and around the water.
