Evaluations

   Charke Swim offers free evaluations. These take only a few minutes and we can recommend what level would be best for you. You'll need your swimsuit. Goggles and a towel are recommended. Please contact us with what day you would like an evaluation and we will give you a time. When you get to the pool, please contact any staff member and indicate that you are there for an evaluation. ​The guide below can help you determine what level you belong in as well.
