2022 Fall Lesson Schedule

Our swim lesson levels follow a typical progression and are designed to build on the skills taught in the previous level. If you are unsure what level your child should be enrolled in, please come during any lap swim for a free placement test. See the completion requirements for individual-level skills.

Swim lesson instructors are returning to in-water instruction. Parents are no longer required to be in the water for Preschool or Youth lessons, only for Parent and Child classes. Student maximums have increased too! Parent and child classes have expanded to five parent/child pairs. All Preschool swim lessons and Youth Levels 1-3 have four students max. Youth levels 4-6 have a max of five students now.
