Welcome to the 2018 group swim lessons! Our goal is to teach your child how to be safe in and around the water, the skills necessary to learn how to swim, and eventually to master their swim strokes. We offer a 6:1 swimmer to instructor ratio so your child receives concentrated guidance and supervision. We want to help create a love of the water and swimming that will last your child a lifetime.

How to Register for Group Lessons:

  • Registration will be available starting May 18th.

  • There is an additional fee of $2 for drop-in swimmers (swimmers who have not signed up for the lesson at least 48 hours in advance).
  • If less than 3 people sign up for a given lesson, the lesson will be offered and will be billed as a semi-private lesson.
  • If no one has signed up for that day’s lesson there is no guarantee that lesson will be held as an instructor may not be present. You may wish to call before dropping-in.
  • Cancellations must be made by 9:00 pm the evening before the lesson to avoid having to pay for the lesson.
  • Instructors may use discretion in reassigning swimmers according to skill level and ability.

Not sure what level your swimmer is or if they’re ready for the swim team? Join us on Tuesday, June 5th or Wednesday, June 13th from 4:30-5:30 pm for evaluations at the pool.

We are asking all new 8 and Under swimmers to attend an evaluation day to determine their placement in swim lessons or the swim team. We will evaluating several strokes and endurance to see what the best fit is for each swimmer. We want the best experience for your swimmer. If your child is placed in lessons, they will still be able to attend swim meets and participate in swim team activities. We are offering evaluations on Tuesday, June 5 and Wednesday June 13, from 4:30-5:30 pm. We’re looking forward to a fun summer!
