Teaching swimmers skills to last a lifetime

Our quality swimming instruction approaches each child's needs at the individual level. We help build each swimmer's endurance and improve strokes while working on basic skills.

Group swim lessons teach children skills in a logical progression for aquatic development. Classes range from  3 - 8 students.


Our class levels meet each swimmer where they are — whether it's their first water experience or they're ready to take on laps.
