Swim Lessons 

Group Lessons are a great way to get your swimmer ready to be safe and have fun around the pool.  There are three types of group lessons that are available before regular pool hours- Mon-Sat:

Private lessons and Semi Private lessons are also available and allow you to work with your busy schedule. Prices range from $20 to $30 per lesson depending upon the instructor.  If you know of a specific instructor that you have used in the past, we can assist the two of you to arrange schedules.  If you are unfamiliar with instructors or would like assistance, we will schedule a match for you for $100 for 4 lessons.  If the instructor and your swimmer do not match, we can find another instructor within the 4 lessons.  

To register for Group Lessons or Semi-Private Lessons Registration will begin in May.

A one-tme $25 administrative fee will be assessed .  Lessons wil be invoiced at the beginning of each session. 

Adult Swim

Adults will have exclusive access to the lap pool from 6pm to 7pm, Monday through Friday, when school is out of session beginning June 10.
