We offer classes for everyone! Whether you are brand new or an experienced swimmer, we can help you improve your swimming ability and water safety skills!


What Class Is Right For You?

Placing of your child into the correct level is critical for their success. Each swimming level focuses on different skills, depending on age and ability. If your child is a beginner, they will start in the first level of either Parent & Child Aquatics, Preschool Aquatics, or Learn to Swim, depending on age. If your child has had swimming lessons before or has some swimming experience, their swimming ability needs to be assessed to determine the appropriate level in our swim lesson program. We provide placement tests free of charge during our public or family swims.
