  • Parent/Child sessions are for ages 6 months to 2 years and focus on the child feeling comfortable in the water as well as learning safety skills underwater. 
  • Learn to Swim focuses on six levels that teach basic movement to advanced stroke techniques. 
  • Preschool sessions are for ages 3 to 5 and offer three skill levels that work on the beginning motions of movement in the water as well as safety techniques.

Lessons are Monday-Friday, with eight lessons per session. The last Friday of each lesson will be a family swim so participants can show off their new skills. Cost is $50 per session.
