Swimming Classes

Students enjoy their swimming class in our specially designed outdoor teaching pool. We keep our heated pool at a very comfortable 90 degrees and the pool depth ranges from 18" - 4' deep. Our caring teachers make sure your children learn respect for the water while developing their swimming skills.

Swim School

Swimming lessons begin in May and go through August. We dedicate one teacher per four students to insure that each student gets plenty of attention.

When determining which level class to sign up for, parents, please be safe and resist the natural impulse to place your child into a "higher" group. If your child is between two levels, or you're unsure of their water competency, please place your child in the lower level. This wise approach will not hinder their progress, as our small groups allow for individual attention. Not honoring this philosophy can be dangerous, traumatic to your child, and disruptive to the instructor, making teaching very difficult.
