Group Swim Lessons

Group lessons begin in June and run Monday through Friday at 11:30, 12:00, or 12:30. (Non-members are welcome, but we ask that they check out after their lessons, before 1:15 pm.) 

Session Dates and Deadlines

Session 1: Monday June 17 to Friday June 28. Screening/ Registration DEADLINE: Thursday, 6/13 7 PM.

Session 2: Monday, July 1 to Friday, July 12.  Screening/ Registration DEADLINE: Wednesday, 6/26, 1 pm.  There will be no lessons on Thursday, July 4

Session 3: Monday, July 15 to Friday, July 26. Screening/Registration DEADLINE: Wednesday, 7/10, 1 pm.

We offer five levels of lessons:

§  Pre-beginners – typically 3-5 year olds, uncomfortable with the water and likely no previous formal lesson instruction.

§  Beginner 1 – usually 4-6 year olds comfortable with the water, but not as confident in their strokes.

§  Beginner 2 – tends to be 5-8 year olds focused on becoming competent in freestyle and possibly backstroke.

§  Beginner 3 – typically 6-9 year olds who have knowledge of freestyle and backstroke and will work to refine those strokes, and possibly learn breaststroke.

§  Advanced Beginner – usually kids 6 years old and up refining their freestyle and backstroke, and just learning butterfly and breaststroke.

Your child will be assigned a level at the registration/screening.
