Swim and Dive Lessons

Swim Class Descriptions (classes are 30 minutes)

Splash with me!  Have fun splashing around with your little one while they learn to love the water!  This class is for babies or toddlers between 3 months - 24 months.  Little ones will learn to love the water as we twist, jump, and splash in the water to music!  This is not a skills based course but a great way to socialize and learn to love the pool!


Skill based classes (max of 4)

Tadpoles: for any child 2-4 years old that can not swim unassisted.  Parent must accompany or stay within contact distance during lesson.  We will practice simple skills like submerging underwater, practicing floating, and kicking.  The goals of this class are to gain confidence in the water, to back float independently, and swim independently for short spurts of time.    


Turtles: for any child 3-5 years old that is able to swim independently for at least 30 seconds but is unable to swim a pool length. In this class we will work on swim strokes, transitioning between floating and active swimming, jumping into the pool and swimming back to the edge.


Dolphins: for any child who is able to swim close to or a full lap but is unable to swim the four full laps required for the swim team.  The instructor will work on strokes, specifically freestyle and backstroke and breathing techniques.  Graduates of this course that can swim 4 laps independently will be recommended for the swim team.
