Private and group classes are taught in 8 consecutive 1/2 hour sessions across two weeks (Mon/Tue/Wed/Thur). We promise that you will see marked improvement in your child’s swimming skills, regardless of their current level.

This class is especially effective for those with high anxiety toward the water or who have failed to progress in other swim programs.

For children ages 24-30 months parents may request to be in the water for the initial 2-3 days, otherwise, parents do not wait poolside during this format of lesson.

  • Level 1-2 Group Fast Track
    $150/8 Group Lessons

    This 8-day parent-tot class, meeting Mon-Thur over two weeks, is designed for infants and toddlers aged 4mos-29mos as an introductory class to the aquatic environment.  Our instructors will equip parents with the proper holds, techniques, and information to confidently assist your child in becoming water safe.  We will help you begin to train your child in breath control, submersion, boundaries in and around water, and proper body positioning.  We will utilize fun songs and games that parents can use to help assure good foundations for your baby or toddler to be safe around and enjoy the water.
