Swim Lessons

We are getting into the busy season for Swim Lessons, so make sure you take a look at the schedule and secure your spot for May early! We are offering a bigger variety of classes at different times –  we are still running the Angelfish II class in the mornings, so if you have a confident 2-year old, this is the class for you! You’ll also see more Starfish classes offered in the afternoon, for students who are ages 7+ and just starting out in lessons.

 Wondering what to bring to lessons? We don’t have too many requirements: If not potty trained, we do require a swim diaper in the water, as well as any kind of swim suit or swimming clothes and a towel to dry off and stay warm! Goggles are not required, but they are encouraged (especially for older levels where kids are swimming all the way across the pool). We do have a few pairs for general use, however we cannot guarantee goggle availability with so many lessons. So if you’ve got a picky swimmer, it might be a good idea to pick up some of your own. Also, students with hair at or longer than shoulder length should have their hair pulled back with a hair tie or swim cap. If you have any more questions about lessons, please reach out to me, I am happy to give advice and recommendations.


Swim Team can be a great opportunity for those swimmers who would like to spend more time in the water developing their skills and learning to think about swimming as a sport, rather than a leisure activity. If your student is interested, feel free to pop in and watch a practice to get an idea of the kinds of skills we develop! Swim Team runs from 5:30-6:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
