Parent & Tot
This parent and child introductory water safety program put you in the water with your little one. This program is designed to teach your child to enjoy the water as they become more comfortable while playing with toys and singing songs. Whether you would like to have a private lesson in the comfort of your home or invite some friends or family to create a group we offer both options. If you prefer to use a community pool we are happy to meet you there too!
Toddlers & Preschoolers
Having fun while learning is the name of the game with this structured program. We use games and playing with water toys to make this a fun atmosphere and enjoyable experience for your children. Our youth swimming program focuses on basic water safety skills and survival self-rescue skills.
As your young children become more proficient in the water we will work towards building self-confidence and learning how to swim independently.
Child ages 5+
Whether you are looking for a basic class for your non-swimmer or your child has been swimming and you would like to work on stroke mechanics and development we have the right program and instructor available. We encourage this age bracket to persevere, remain confident, and have fun while striving to reach their individual goals.
Adults & Seniors
We have a variety of programs available for adults ranging from first-time swimmers, aqua fitness classes, and certification courses.
First-time swimmers will be able to learn in the privacy of their own home with an American Red Cross trained swim instructor with at least 2 years of experience. You are never too old to learn and we focus primarily on comfortability and remaining calm. You will progress at your own pace and learn skills such as floating and kicking moving further into stroke mechanics when you are ready.
