The Parent-Tot Program is perfect for baby and infant swimming lessons as it caters to children under 2 years old. This swim class helps to establish comfort in the water and it is also a great bonding time for parents and their children. In this class, the teacher will teach the parents how to correctly hold their child in the water, the correct way to take them underwater, and the importance of the back float. Our technique is taught using songs and games that introduce what the child will soon be learning later in private swim lessons.
Saturday from 11:30 – 12:00
Private Swim classes
Private lessons are a perfect option for swimmers looking to gain confidence in skills or get a competitive edge. Our lessons give youth or adults individualized attention to master swimming skills by setting your own goals with the instructor. The instructor will then customize lessons to meet these objectives.
