Swim School, Private and Semi-Private Lessons
Learning to swim is a life skill. From infants to adults, we offer both group and private lessons for all ability levels with numerous developmental approaches to meet everyone’s needs. Swim School focuses on each person as a developing individual, teaching them to not only appreciate the water, but to also become safe and develop competitive strokes, which will prepare them for swimming as a sport or for a lifetime of enjoyment. It is our belief that early exposure to water will have a beneficial effect on your child but it’s never too late to learn through our adult group swim lessons. We follow American Red Cross guidelines for teaching all classes.
