Year-Round Lessons

Learn-to-Swim Program

Our Learn-to-Swim program is unique compared to other learn to swim programs. The program is designed for children over 6 months up to adults. Students progress through the levels at their own pace, mastering the skills in the one level before then advancing to the next. 

Summer swim sessions begin June 18, 2018. For each class we offer four sessions that run back-to-back. Each session runs Monday through Thursday for two weeks.

Dates and times for summer swim lessons become available during the Spring. Contact the Membership Office or check the Aquatics Recreation Guide for more details on dates and times.
