Swim Lessons Program

Our Learn-to-Swim program is unlike anything offered by other learn to swim programs! We offer lessons for children beginning at six months old all the way up to adults. Participants progress through the levels at their own pace, mastering the skills in one level before advancing to the next.  Each level of our Learn-to-Swim program includes training in basic water safety and helping others in an emergency, in addition to stroke development

Adult Group Swim Lessons

These 45 minute group lessons are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the school year and summer months.  We offer beginning and intermediate group swim lessons.
