Swim Lessons

The Youth group (ages 6-12) includes beginner, intermediate and advance levels. Swim Instructors will perform a skills evaluation on the first day of class to assess each swimmer's ability to group students into appropriate level. Class emphasizes skills of body position, breathing, arm movements, kicking, and floating. Children who continue through the preschool swim levels will continue developing strokes and improving endurance. Classes are Monday and Wednesday, or Tuesday and Thursday.
