Learn-to-Swim teaches people of varying ages and abilities how to swim skillfully and safely. Each level includes training in basic water safety in addition to aquatic and safety skills taught in a logical progression. At least one instructor in each class has successfully completed American Red Cross training and is a certified Water Safety Instructor!

American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim will be offered in 8-week sessions each season and is designed for swimmers ages 6 months and above. Each level will be offered at least twice/week. American Red Cross Preschool Aquatics will be offered once/week on Thursday afternoons.

Preschool Aquatics

Our Preschool Aquatics group swim program is designed to orient young preschoolers to the aquatic environment and help them gain basic aquatic skills. Participants start learning how to be safe around water.

Home school Swim Lessons

This 8-week program gives homeschoolers an opportunity for physical education and to spend time with swimming friends in the Indoor Pool! We offer two groups: a Swim Class for beginner swimmers (ages 3 and above) and a Stroke Mechanics and Conditioning class for more experienced swimmers.


We will be starting our Fall Session of Homeschool Swim on October 10th. This session will run on Tuesdays for 10-consecutive weeks, ending on December 12th. “Swim Class” will be held from 12:30  -1:15 PM (the last 5 minutes or so will be free swim). “Stroke Mechanics & Conditioning” for more advanced, Swim Team-level swimmers will be held from 1:15 - 2:15 PM (a portion of the end of the class will be free swim as well).


You can also call in to register or register in person. The fee for this program is $85 for members and $100 for non-members. There will be a $15 discount per participant if you are registering 3 or more children. Please call in to register to take advantage of this discount.

Private Swim Lessons

Swimming helps to develop cardiovascular endurance for aerobic exercises, the most important factor of physical fitness. Since all major muscle groups are used in swimming, muscles develop in good proportion. No other sport does this as well as swimming. It also helps develop superior coordination because it requires a combination of complex movements of all parts of the body, enhancing muscle function, balance, and range of motion. Swimming is the most injury-free of all sports.

Private lessons are recommended primarily for those who have an extreme fear of the water, as well as swimmers who otherwise need special attention. Each class provides the one-on-one instruction needed for the swimmer to excel.
