Swimming Lessons

These lessons are very popular! Be sure to check the Community Guide, then register to save your spot. Lessons are offered by qualified instructors. Swim Lesson programs for children aged 6 months to 15 years.

If you have any questions our staff can help you register in the right level, or we can set you up with a complimentary swim assessment. Our assessments are a 5-10 minute evaluation in the water with the child looking to be registered. The Instructor will check the swimmers skills and give you clear feedback on where to register your child.
