We are deeply committed to providing an opportunity for children and adults of all ages to learn, master and enjoy the ability to swim. We offer swim lessons for all ages and abilities with an emphasis on confidence, personal safety, swimming skills and endurance. Our small class size allows for greater individual attention and is offered throughout the week, so you can pick one that best fits your schedule. Need more personalized attention? Private and semi-private swim lessons are available year round.

In order to adhere to proper social distancing guidelines we’re offering Private/Semi-Private Lessons only.
