Group Swim Lessons
Choosing the right swim lessons is the first step in your child’s aquatic education. It is important to select lessons that provide equal amounts of new challenges and old favorites in order to foster confidence, skill progression, endurance, and safe water practices.
We have outlined the critical prerequisite skills that determine class placement. Please use the guide below to help identify the swim class that most appropriately matches your child’s swimming skill level.
