Indoor Swimming Pool

Swim Programs

Swim instruction is offered for all ages and abilities. Most of our swim lessons are held in the 2' - 3' deep area of the pool where students can easily stand. Students spend their class time in the water -- not sitting on the side of the pool waiting for "their turn." Parents can sit at the tables on the pool deck and watch their child's swim lesson. We have Little Swimmers classes through Stroke Clinic and Pre-Team for advanced swimmers. We teach our students how to swim using a supportive, structured and FUN environment. Our instructors encourage students to try new skills as they gain self-confidence in the water. Our instructors are certified lifeguards and most of them have a minimum of 2 years of experience teaching swim lessons.

Sign up for our swim programs through Club Automation. Check out below the list of various swim classes we offer.

Group Lessons

Classes are broken up by age and ability. Our program has 5 levels--each level has specific skills students must accomplish before moving to the next level. Students also learn Safety Skills (ex. look before you leap) at every level. Students will receive a Certificate of Completion when they have completed the skills and are ready to advance to the next level.

Class Size and Length
Our classes have 4 - 6 students per instructor. We MUST have a minimum of 4 students to hold a class. Classes that don't have the required number of students may be cancelled, and students will be unenrolled/contacted about other options for taking the class on an alternate day or time.

Swim classes for Levels 1 - 4 meet for 30 minutes, Level 5 meets for 45 minutes and Stroke Clinics/Pre-Team meet for 1 hour.

***We no longer offer “member” prices for swim lessons.  It is a set price for members and non-members.

Suggestions when Registering for Group Swim Lessons

  • Read the Class Descriptions to determine your child's swim level.

  • Students usually need to repeat a level a few times before they are proficient enough with the skills to advance to the next level.

  • Do not register your child for a class that is too advanced. Instructors teach the skills required for the scheduled level and cannot take time away from these students to teach different skills to a child who is in the wrong level.

  • If your child does not meet the level requirements at the first lesson, your child will be moved to another class if space is available and a $5 transfer fee will be assessed. If no space is available, your child will be withdrawn from the class and a pro-rated credit will be issued. No Refunds.

  • On the last day of class, instructors will issue Certificates of Completion to students who have successfully completed the skills required for their level.

  • Remember to check your schedule BEFORE registering for swim lessons. There is a $5 charge to change any of your class information once you have register.

 

Note: Ages are guidelines NOT absolute cut-offs. Children more than 2 years older than the guidelines need approval from the Aquatics Director to register for the class. Levels usually need to be repeated to complete the skills required for completion. You can ask your child's instructor what level what level to take.

Private Instruction

Private lessons are a great way to ensure that your child receives personal attention. We have slots for private lessons between noon and 4:30pm on weekdays and between 4pm and 8pm on weekends

Before you schedule a private/semi-private lesson, we need to make sure the student is in our system. If you are new to the club please create an account here. Then send us an email with the student's name, age, swim level/experience, preferred timings, and preferred instructor (if any). If requesting a semi-private lesson, provide information about all the students. Students taking semi-private lessons should be at approximately the same swim level. Once your email is received, your request will be discussed with the swim instructors and a staff member will get back to you as soon as possible. 

*Private lessons are taught at the discretion and availability of both the instructor and facilities, and thus we cannot guarantee private lessons at the requested time.

Note: Call at least 12 hours in advance to cancel a private or semi-private lesson to avoid being charged for the class.
