Due to COVID-19, we are presently not offering Adult Group Swim Lessons. Private adult lessons are available.
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 with Parent
Pre-school swim lessons are designed to meet the unique needs of young children as they develop and strengthen swimming skills. *These classes are currently a Pre-School with Parent swim lesson. The parent must accompany the child in the water 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)
Adaptive Swim Lessons are currently not running due to COVID-19. Please contact Diane Sagaser for more information.
