Group Swim Lessons (Ages 4-15)

Lessons follow a research-based curriculum that allows students to progress through the levels at their own pace, mastering the skills in one level before advancing to the next. Classes are divided into groups based on ability and completion of prerequisites.

Adult Group Lessons (16+)

Calling all adults who never learned how to swim or haven't swam in years and you would like a refresher. Then this class is for you. Our adult swim lessons focuses on basic strokes and safety around water. So whether you are planning on swimming at the pool or going out on the boat, this class is for you.

Private Lessons (All Ages)

One-on-one instruction is provided for children and adults. Semi-private lessons are offered for students at the same skill level that wish to share the instructor. Students may work on the skills from the group lessons or other specific skills as desired.
