Learn to Swim

*All classes are 30 minutes in length once per week.

*Group Swim Lessons (and semi-private lessons) are available:
* Mornings : MON – FRI 9:00am – 11:55am. SAT 8:25am – 12:30pm.
* Afternoons/Evenings : MON – THURS 3:25pm – 6:55pm. FRI 3:25pm – 5:45pm.

*Private Swim Lessons – due to the high demand of our group classes, we will be changing the way we offer private swim lessons. We will no longer be offering private lessons during our normal schedule times. Anyone interested in our private swim lessons will be placed on a wait list for our teachers to schedule when they have time outside of their normal hours. This new change only applies to 1 on 1 private lessons, not our semi-private lessons. This change will allow clients the flexibility to pay for and commit to any number of lessons at a time, as opposed to having to fit within our normal schedule. In the event we do end up with openings in our regular schedule, we can contact those on the wait list, to see if those times might work for private lessons. In the event that this happens, clients would have to register for the entire session, but would be granted a make up lessons as normal.

*If you have questions on levels or abilities, please contact us so we can help find the right class for you.

This is a Parent / Child class with a primary focus on safety. No prior swimming experience required at this level. We want your little one to feel comfortable and happy in the water. Our teaching techniques are creative and loving and we always teach in progression.
