Learn to swim and have fun…in 2021!
We are very excited to be offering swim lessons again this year! Each session will consist of four 50 minute lessons. Each session runs for one week, Monday through Thursday, with Friday set aside as a weather make-up day. Please plan to arrive at the pool 10-15 minutes early so that the teachers have time to find their groups and begin on time!
Swim Lessons Level Descriptions
There are four swimming levels:
Level 1 is to allow the student to get comfortable in and around the water and to practice water safety.
Level 2 is to teach students the basics of swimming.
Level 3 is to improve the students free and back skills while beginning to teach the breaststroke and butterfly kicks.
Level 4 is to teach students the full breaststroke and butterfly strokes while continuing to build up their endurance in freestyle and backstroke.
More detailed descriptions of the class levels can be found here in the Teachers Guide & FAQ.
