Intermediate Swim Lessons

Intermediate swim lessons are designed for independent swimmers who can swim 15 feet on their front/back. Participants will learn new strokes, continue to refine freestyle and backstroke skills and learn deep water safety skills. All classes (except Seahorse) are limited to 8 participants per instructor; Seahorse classes have 6 participants per instructor.

Course descriptions and ages for the lessons are guidelines. Your child may be more or less advanced than the suggested ages. Generally, children will remain at the same level for at least two sessions.
