Infant with Parent

In this class, infants begin to be comfortable in the water by playing water games, singing songs, and repeating skills.
ages: 6 – 18 months

Toddler with Parent

Now that we are toddlers, we’re ready to swim! We play, sing, and learn to kick, reach and pull, jumping in, and blowing bubbles
ages: 18 – 36 months




Pre-school swim lessons are offered with and without parent and are designed to meet the unique needs of young children as they develop and strengthen swimming skills. Goggles are strongly recommended and are available for purchase at the front desk.

ages: 3 – 5 years  (not yet in Kindergarten)





School-age Swim lessons are structured with the older child in mind. As bodies and minds mature, so does the ability to develop their swim skills. Youth are grouped by ability. Classes are held in the lap pool. Goggles are strongly recommended.

ages: 5 years + (must be currently enrolled in Kindergarten)


Junior Breakers

Please continue to check the website for more information regarding the Fall Junior Breakers program.  

Junior Breakers is a non-competitive developmental swim program designed for athletes who have completed swim lessons and are looking to continue to develop their skills at a higher level. All swimmers should be able to swim 50 yards front crawl with rhythmic breathing and 50 yards backstroke. Swimmers should be comfortable diving.  



Adaptive Swim Lessons are currently not running due to COVID-19.  Please contact Diane Sagaser for more information.
