Group lessons are available for the following swim levels:

Introduction to Swimming
This class is for young children (recommended ages 2-4) who are hesitant to put their face in the water and are unable to swim at all unassisted. The class will focus on getting them comfortable in the water and able to kick and swim for short distances.

Beginning Swimming
This class is recommended for children who are already comfortable in the water, but who cannot swim on their own. Instructors will work on building technique and endurance through kicking and other drills with the ultimate goal of teaching their students to efficiently swim several meters unassisted.
Intermediate Swimming
This class is for children who are able to put their face in the water and briefly swim unassisted for several body lengths (less than six meters). The class will focus on improving the swimmer’s endurance and techniques to achieve greater distances with increased efficiency. In order to ensure that the swimmer is comfortable in deeper sections of the pool by the end of the course, some of the instruction may take place in the lap lanes or diving well sections of the pool.

Advanced Swimming/Stroke Development
This class is for children (recommended ages 5 and up) who are able to swim at least six meters unaided and require instruction on proper swim stroke technique. Instructors will go over the different competition strokes as well as provide the swimmers with drills and exercises to help build up endurance so that they can swim greater distances unassisted. Much of this class will take place in the main/lap lanes section of the pool (3.5-4ft deep), with occasional forays to the diving well to practice treading water or other deep water drills, so children should be comfortable entering deeper waters.
