Swimming lessons are offered year-round with a low 5:1 maximum student-to-instructor ratio to create strong swimmers through personalized skill development based on age, ability, and confidence in the water. These courses are designed to teach young swimmers basic water safety, water adjustment, and swimming skills that help them grow more independent in the water. Water play songs and games help ensure participants remember swimming skills and offer a fun-filled learning environment.
Classes are approximately 25 minutes
