Our first priority in teaching swimming is to make everyone safe in and around the water.  Second, swimming provides for one of the best forms of fitness for all ages.  And third, by becoming comfortable around the water and skilled in basic swimming techniques, one finds the aquatic world is filled with a multitude of recreational activities that add to the overall enjoyment of life.

Summer Swim Lessons 2024

Group Lesson Schedule (Youth Lessons)

 Throughout the summer we will have lessons available in the mornings and the evenings during the weeks listed above. AM lessons will take place Monday - Thursday, while PM lessons will be held Mon, Tues, & Thurs.

Morning Lesson Options: 9:45am, 10:25am, 11:05am

Evening Lesson Options: 6:00pm, 6:35pm

All classes will be 30 minutes.

Youth Group Lesson Format

New swimmers will be assessed within the first 10 minutes of their first class. Groups are formed based on ability level, and swimmers are grouped with peers of a similar age range who are working on mastering the same skills. Each station (1-10) has a different set of mastery goals, building on what athletes have mastered in the previous stations. Once a swimmer demonstrates mastery of their station's advancement goals, they are immediately moved up to the next station. No one will stay in one particular station for any specific amount of time, and advancement will be different for each student. This ensures every swimmer in our program is receiving instruction at their level, and all are working toward mastery!
