AQUASTAR is a successful year-round competitive swim team located in Clear Lake, TX. We have been "Turning today’s potential into tomorrow’s performance" for over 12 years. Now, we aim to instill the love of swimming at an earlier age, with our Learn to Swim program.
AQUASTAR’s Learn to Swim program introduces children of all skill levels to a new swimming program where they can learn to swim or improve their technique. Children must be at least four years of age to enroll. The program will teach children to swim in a positive, well-structured environment, while also teaching the importance of water safety. Our instructors are trained, experienced, and excited to teach swimming!
The tuition fee is $90 for an 8-class session.

The LEARN TO SWIM program cost is $90 for 8 lessons. Lessons may be taken 4 days a week (Monday through Thursday) for two straight weeks.
Be sure to include which class sessions you desire.To determine correct level, please look at the class descriptions pages. Use level that best describes the level at which the student last swam. Please note out to side if this was last summer, or if student has been in another year-round program.
If student is under age five and has not swum since last summer, some regression is expected. To better determine actual level, keep in mind that until age five or six, if student is out of water for as many months as they are old (i.e., 2 months for a two year old, etc.) they will tend to forget their "balance" in the water. If between the ages two and three, children are also going through a developmental stage of experiencing fear, and this may influence their relationship with the water.
To determine group or private, keep this in mind: We strongly recommend private for children ages four and under. If group is preferred for this age group, it is best to begin with the Parent & Child class for beginners.
* Private is also recommended for older children that are beginners, and those that need to learn new strokes in a hurry (i.e., a seven year-old beginning swim team in May, etc.).
* Group is recommended for all students that can already swim at a Level 3 or above. Group classes are small (4:1 ratio), and the camaraderie of the group usually helps students to advance quicker.
Getting assigned to a specific class: When your registration is received, students will be scheduled on a first-come basis. Specific class times will be confirmed by telephone before session begins. Be sure to include your other possibilities in scheduling, in case your first choice is not available. Keep in mind the most popular lesson times are after school, 4:30 - 6:30 PM during the school year, and mornings during the summer. Try to give us several days to choose from if this is your preferred schedule.
If you cancel your lessons 14 days or more before the session begins, you will receive a refund minus $5 registration fee. If you cancel 7 days before the session begins, you may receive a refund minus a $30 administration fee. If you cancel during the session, there is no refund.
Unfortunately, we DO NOT prorate/refund for vacations, recitals, scheduling conflicts, or instructor substitution or changes.
We do not allow instructors to teach if they are contagiously ill, but will do our best to provide a substitute teacher. If a substitute is unavailable, and we cancel your lesson, you will receive a make-up, but we DO NOT provide make-ups for vacations, recitals, scheduling conflicts, or non-illness related instructor substitutions or changes.
