  • Swim Lessons

    Eight 20-minute lessons in a session, M-TH. 
    Ages 4 and up offered Session 1, 2, 3.

    From bubbles to flip turns, we offer one-on-one swim lessons to children at all swim levels. Little swimmers will discover how to fully submerge their face and blow bubbles and experience supported floating and kicking on front and back. More advance swimmers will begin to learn alternating arm action, swimming under water, and rhythmic breathing, and the major strokes. For swimmers ready for even more advanced techniques, a program can be adapted to meet your swimmers individual needs. Sorry, no make-ups for missed lessons.
