Water Starters Swim Lessons (ages  6 months – 3 years)

Swim lessons for the Water Starter classes focus on bonding with your child, water adjustment, safety skills for both parent and child, and comfort in the water.

These classes can have both parents or 2 adults participating.  Feel free to bring the grandparents!

Pre-School and School Age Lessons:

All of our lessons for ages 3-12 are incorporated in our new program that offers lessons on a leveled basis for more thorough instruction. Levels 1, 2, and 3 offer instruction on personal safety, basic water skills, and introductory swim skills. This is a great starting point for any age with any ability.
