Is learning to swim one of your goals? Consider registering for swim lessons. Swim lessons are offered on a monthly basis, usually consisting of 4 lessons per session. Swim lessons are free (they are included in your membership fee). Our current swim lessons offered are: Gaining Comfort, Beginners and Advanced Beginners. 

There will be no swim lessons offered in July or August. They will resume in September. Have a great summer!

Gaining Comfort classes are limited to 4 participants. You will work one on one with the instructor to increase your comfort level in the water so that the aquatic environment can be used for wellness without fear.  Participants will also work toward being able to swim independently.

Beginner classes are limited to 6 participants.  This level is best for those who are comfortable in the water and able to float independently, but have little or no experience with swimming.  You will work with the instructor to learn different strokes at your own pace, striving to become proficient at each of the strokes.  Participants MUST be able to float independently for this level.

Advanced Beginner classes are also limited to 6 participants.  At this level you should have a basic knowledge of one or more strokes.  You will be introduced to additional strokes and begin to work on improving your swimming stamina.  Participants MUST be able to swim one length of the pool for this level.
