Group Swim Lessons
We offer different group swim lesson classes and skill levels to accommodate each student's individual swimming goals and needs. For adults, our group swim lessons are mostly instructional and suitable for a wide range of skill levels. Our kids swim lessons are taught in a fun-filled environment where children learn the basic techniques of swimming. Safety skills are emphasized.
Participants may join our Group Swim Lessons offered as 6 to 8-week sessions or our 1-week intensive.
Next Session begins May 12th

Offered a few times each week during the evening and once during the day, participants in these classes usually range from beginner swimmers who are somewhat fearful to intermediate swimmers who would like some extra pointers to improve their swimming technique. Class size is generally very small, usually about 3 swimmers.

Ages 6 months to 3 years old. A parent or caregiver is in the water with the child, learning how to encourage safety, gain and inspire confidence and start building swimming skills.
