CONCORD CAMPUS OFFERING: Take advantage of unlimited swimming and request the “Unlimited” option when registering for group lessons in our Concord location. Depending upon which option you choose, you will be assigned 1 or 2 ongoing “home base” class(es) each week. The “home base” class(es) are your guaranteed class spot(s) each week and also where an instructor will be evaluating progress and graduation readiness of unlimited students. In addition to the “home base” class, you will have access to an unlimited number of “like” classes each month. Simply contact the school via phone, email or the Unlimited Form in the Customers section of the website to book additional classes as available.

 Unlimited Swim is a fantastic choice for those with time and a desire to accelerate the learning process. For a slightly increased fee per month, you will be able to add an unlimited amount of additional classes per day / week / month (as you desire and as we have available). Keeping an ongoing “home base” class(es) guarantees the consistency of one same class each week with an instructor who knows your child and will monitor their progress towards graduation. If one week, you are unable to take more classes due to your hectic schedule, you can rest assured that you always have your “home base” class space held for you each week. More water time means faster progress, more physical activity and better fitness throughout the year. This is a deal you don’t want to miss!


  1. Once registered as an unlimited student, contact the school via phone at 866-633-4147 OR by using the Concord Unlimited Form in the Customers section of the website to reserve your spot in any available “like” class for the current day or following 4 days in advance. Class space is booked on a first come, first serve basis and will be booked in the order received.

  1. All classes booked, both ongoing and unlimited, must be cancelled by 9 AM the day of the scheduled class in order to remain in the Unlimited program. Contact the school via the Report An Absence Form in the Customers section. With Concord Unlimited, a class that has not been cancelled will be subject to a $10 “no-show” fee. In order for this program to work, AquaTech must know if you will not be attending a class you have previously booked.

  1. The Withdrawal Form must be completed in order to withdraw from the Concord Unlimited program. All withdrawals are due by no later than 12 PM (noon) on the final day of each month to avoid billing on the 1st of the month. This form can be found in the Customers section of the website.

BREATHING FOR SURVIVAL & STROKES: The Silverfish/Goldfish level is one level with 2 progressive stages, Silverfish to Goldfish.

The lesson is 30 minutes in length and the student to teacher ratio is 4:1.


COMPETITIVE FREESTYLE & BACKSTROKE: The Eel level builds upon the skills learned in the Puffer level by introducing more advanced forms of technique and faster, more efficient breathing techniques for Freestyle and Backstroke.

Lessons are 30 minutes in length and the student to teacher ratio is 5:1.
