Please be advised of the following protocol:
• Signed Waiver / Forms Required to Participate In Class

Group Swim Lessons

New & Improved!
Baby & Me Swim Lessons

Age:  3 months – 3 years + Adult
Only 1 adult allowed per child

Maximum of 12 per class

We’ve revamped this program! Baby & Me will now be offered at 4 levels. This new structure will feature skills and concepts to help children become safer and more independent in the water. This program is designed for both children and parents to learn safety skills. Lessons will follow a transitional course moving from parents in the water with their child to the child completing the lesson independently with the instructor.

Private & Semi-Private Swim Lessons

Members, Ages 3 – Adult

These lessons are a great way to get individualized instruction and focused attention on any areas of concern. Private lesson are tailored to your skill level, ongoing and can be scheduled at your convenience.  Private lessons are for one person. Semi-Private lessons are for groups of two at similar skill level.

Infant – Toddler

Members, Ages 3 months – 3 years

Start swimming sooner! In private lessons young children will learn essential water safety skills and learn to be comfortable and confident in the water from an early age. Parents of children ages 12 months and younger have the option of getting in the water and completing the private lesson with their child. Contact Sarah Waszgis  to schedule your private lessons.

Private Lessons

•  Lessons are open to Members only

• Private lessons are 1 member per instructor

• Infants (ages 3-12 months) will have 20-minute sessions. If they choose to, parents may join their child and the instructor in the water for their private lesson.

• Toddlers (ages 1 – 3 years) will have 30-minute sessions. We recommended parents NOT join their child in the water for this level of private lesson.

• The recommended lesson structure is 2x per week for 4 weeks at a time, however lessons are scheduled to fit each individuals availability.
We recommend continuing lessons after skills are mastered for maintenance.
