Enjoy some time in the water for fitness, competition, or perhaps learn a new skill like how to become a lifeguard; and, swim lessons are a great way to introduce kids to the world of aquatics in a safe and fun way!

Grade School Swim Classes
Swimming is an excellent way to stay fit and active, and we offer five levels of classes for youth, based on age and swimming ability.
Penguins 1 & 2: Get children with little or no swimming experience started with the basics. Water safety, floating, kicks, arm action and use of legs introduce kids to this terrific sport. Penguins 1, ages 6 ½ – 12 Years Old. Penguins 2, ages 8 – 12 Years Old.
Our Open Swim sessions are a great time for kids to practice swim lessons, for moms and dads to join the kids for some recreation and fun, or for individuals to relax and refresh in the pool!
