We now offer Adult Swim Lessons & Preschool Aquatics.
ADULT SWIM LESSONS:
Beginner: No prior swim lesson experience needed. We will teach fearful and or limited ability students. Purpose of the lesson will be to help participants become and feel more comfortable in and around the water. Skills to be taught will include floating, breathing, basic movements and strokes in order to lead toward greater swimming and stroke ability.
Advanced Beginner: Designed for those who already are comfortable in the water and who can swim in deep water (water over their heads) efficiently and without fear. Students should have basic knowledge and skill level of free stroke. He/She should be able to comfortably and consistently float as well as swim 1 length (25 yards on back and front) of the pool. Lessons will improve breathing, safety and stroke technique while adding increased endurance.
We feel there are some children which may perform better within their own age group. Therefore we have assembled the following swim classes for children 3-5 years of age.
PRESCHOOL AQUATICS: Beginner: This level is equivalent to Learn-to-Swim Level 1. This is taught in the therapeutic pool. Swimmer: This level is for those students who are unafraid, can put face in and go underwater repeatedly and comfortably; are able to perform front floats & back floats by themselves or with very minimal assistance; can kick and blow bubbles on barbell and kick on back with barbell by themselves; able to swim on front unassisted ; is able to perform a safety jump by themselves.

No make up classes offered . No credit card refunds will be issued. Once a class has started, no refunds are available for classes that the swimmer chooses to not attend. Each session is reserved for the student only, therefore we cannot offer a pro rated class or a refund if you cannot attend.

The pools are reserved for our membership only. If you wish to swim at anytime, you are welcome to purchase a membership so that you and your family can extend the time prior to or after your scheduled lesson. Children should not be in either pool unless their lesson is in session with the instructor. If you are not a current paid member, you will need to exit the pool upon completion of your scheduled lesson.
