Swim Lessons

Group Swim Lessons

Group Swim Lessons are a great way for children to learn how to swim or to develop their current swimming abilities. Group Swim accommodates a variety of ages starting at six months. All Swim Lessons are taught by an American Red Cross certified Water Safety Instructor. Each of the levels is designed by the American Red Cross Association and is fun and informative. The lessons used are easy for parents to transfer into private or open water even after the lessons are over helping to continue the development of the child.

Swim lessons are divided into 6 levels: One through Five and Parent Tot. The program is designed to allow a child to develop from Parent Tot through Level 5 over time. After a child has completed all six levels, they will receive a book to take home and practice their skills. Parents are highly encouraged to remain at the pool for the duration of the lesson.

Cancellations

Group Swim Lessons maybe cancelled by the Aquatics staff for proper water chemistry balance or inclement weather. If the Aquatics staff must cancel a lesson, we will host a make up lesson within the timeframe of the lessons at no additional charge. Due to the nature of the swim lesson program, if the swim lesson participant misses a lesson, there will be no individual make up lesson or refunds for the missed lesson.

Private Swim Lessons

Private swim lessons are a great way for anyone of any swimming ability to work in a one on one environment. The instructors are all Certified Water Safety Instructors by the American Red Cross Association and will apply American Red Cross lesson plans to each session. Each lesson is 30 minutes in length. Any client who is under the age of 16 must perform their lessons during family hours and have a parent or guardian with them during the swim lessons. All lessons conducted at the outdoor pool are subject to inclement weather. If a lesson is cancelled due to inclement weather, the client will not be charged for the lesson and it will be rescheduled.
