Available classes

Parent and Child Aquatics

Great experiences and fun activities are provided to teach infants and young children to feel comfortable in the water. There are no skill evaluations here—just lots of positive reinforcement from instructors and parents.

Preschool Aquatics

Give your child an opportunity to learn new swimming and water safety skills, putting the "fun" in fundamentals! Each class presents enjoyable, engaging activities that challenge and motivate children to want to perform and learn to swim.

Learn-to-Swim Levels 1 and 2

Instructors continue to teach new swimming and water safety skills, while also building on previously learned skills. In Level 2 your child begins to perform skills at a slightly more advanced level and gains rudimentary propulsive skills on both the front and the back.

Learn-to-Swim Levels 3 and 4

Your child learns to swim the front crawl and elementary backstroke, and is introduced to the scissors and dolphin kicks. Level 4 adds the breaststroke, butterfly, back crawl and sidestroke, and focuses on improving swimming stroke proficiency and swimming for longer distances.

Learn-to-Swim Levels 5 and 6

All six swimming strokes are refined, with higher expectations for swimming distance and quality. Level 6 also teaches more complex water safety skills that may help you survive in an emergency.

Learn-to-Swim Adult

Developed for older teens and adults, this program gives adult swimmers at every level the opportunity to improve their skills in a safe environment under the guidance of a trained instructor.
