Swim Lessons

We offer swim lessons all year.  Each student progresses at a different speed in learning aquatic skills which is dependent on a number of factors including class attendance, coordination development, water familiarity and outside practice.  In addition, a child's stage of development may influence his or her ability to learn aquatic skills.  Students often repeat a level several times before mastering skills required for advancement.  It is important to understand that repeating a level does not constitute failure.  Mastering skills takes time, practice and patience.
