Group Swim Lessons

The following course descriptions cover ALL swim lessons offered. Please note that as the levels progress, it is not unusual for a child to repeat a level several times. Remember that each child is unique and is evaluated on their swimming ability, not age. If you are not sure about what level to place your child into, please feel free to ask the Aquatics Manager and staff. Please observe all swimming lessons from the pool balcony. There will be no refunds or make-ups for missed classes. Non-residents may register 2 weeks prior to the start of the session. Online registration is now available.
