Swim 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 confident, preparing them for swimming as a sport or for a lifetime of enjoyment. We follow the American Red Cross guidelines for teaching all classes.
