Swim Programs For All Ages

Year-Round Swimming

Join us in our year round commitment to fitness, safety and swimming.

Summer is wild and fun. Weekly lessons give the hours of summer swimming some structure and motivation to practice better skills.

Fall swimming helps our students maintain their skills and confidence as the routine of the school year returns. Build on it, work on it and let them learn skills that will make their lifetime water experiences all the more comfortable and rewarding.

Winter lessons are great! Children who attend swimming lessons once per week all year long become much calmer and more efficient in the water. They develop a “feel” for the water that helps them become more confident swimmers. Once they have this confidence then they can improve their strokes and technique.

Levels

Children learn best through a routine that is familiar and predictable. We will learn a routine and build new skills into each lesson. Our goal is for each student to become comfortable, safe swimmers who understand buoyancy and balance in the water.

Baby Swim

  • 25-minute classes ages 2 months-36 months (3 years).
  • 6 babies (with adults) per class maximum.
  • (Temporarily reduced to semiprivate lessons to accommodate social distancing. 2 babies with adults per class maximum.)

Little Froggy Classes (Baby & Me)

The Little Froggy classes offer social opportunities, unrestricted physical activity and exercises to aid in becoming comfortable in water in preparation for continued swim skill building through the years. Each child has an adult (parent or other) with him/her at all times. This class includes an introduction to water safety and primary water skills; including back floats, submersions, rollover breathing and water play in a fun, family friendly environment.

We separate the babies into four levels:

Baby Splash: 2-5 month olds (FREE 20 minute, 1 time per week classes) (Temporarily not offered)

Little Froggy 1: 6-18 month olds

Little Froggy 2: 18-36 month olds

Little Froggy Advanced: 18-36 month olds (teacher recommendation required)

Cloth reusable swim diapers are REQUIRED for all students under the age of 3, even those who are potty trained.

Group Lessons
