Swim Lessons

Children in swimming pool

Lots of in-water practice. Hands-on teaching activities that are fun for everyone. An emphasis on solid swimming strokes and skills. These key components of our Swim for Life™ program combine to create life-long swimmers.

Our swim lessons programming, for students of all levels and abilities, is built around the Lifesaving Society Swim to Survive™ standard, which stresses orienting yourself after falling into the water, supporting yourself at the surface and swimming to safety. Swim with us and learn skills that last a lifetime.

If your child took lessons with a different program and you want to know the Swim for Life™ equivalent, see our Program Transition Chart.

Private swim lessons

Led by our highly-trained instructors, these sessions are ideal for anyone wanting personalized instruction to improve their swimming. Lessons are tailored to each individual/group. The cost of the lesson is the same whether with a single participant or group—so grab some friends and swim for a fraction of the cost! Max of 3 participants per group. We suggest that individuals are similar in swimming skills to optimize time with the instructor.
