2021 Swim Lesson Form


Private and Semi-Private Swim Lessons

If you are interested in becoming comfortable in the water, want to improve your form or want to swim faster, we can develop a program to suit your needs. An instructor will work with you to determine the best to help achieve your goals. Private lessons are perfect for those who prefer one-on-one attention. Semi-Private lessons offer similar advantages for two students with one instructor.

Parent/Child Swim Lessons

Ages 6 months - 3 years

This 30-minute class is for children ages 6-36 months and their parents. The primary objective is to get both the parent and child comfortable in the water. The child will become aware of the differences between moving through water and on dry land, while the parent will become aware of how to teach his or her child to be safer in and around the water. Classes are designed to allow the child to have fun in the water while the parent guides him or her to learn aquatic skills. The child will be exposed to games that use basic movements in the water, such as kicking, arm strokes, and breath control. Activities are based on the developmental abilities of the child.

We are currently not offering parent-child swim lessons due to facility capacity restrictions brought about COVID-19. We will update this page when we are ready to resume parent-child swim lessons.
