The ability to swim is not something the comes naturally to us like walking, running, kicking or jumping. It is something that takes time to learn. Not only does learning in an aquatic environment stimulate all the senses, but it also muffles them as well. We have a natural fear of water which delays the learning process. Whether you have a newborn child or you are an adult with many years behind you, everyone of all ages can learn how to swim.

Classes offered are:

Baby & Me (ages 0 – 18 mo) Toddler & Me (ages 19 – 36 mo) Kids Group (ages 3 – 6)
Youth Group (ages 7 – 10)

Teen Group (ages 11 – 17) Adult Group (ages 18 +)

Private and Semi-Private swim lessons also offered.
