Parent & Mini

For swimmers ages 3 and under. 


This session is an introduction to the water. 


Mom or Dad, enjoy a memorable experience with your little one in this small group setting before the pool opens for the day.


Swimmers must be comfortable enough to get in the pool without assistance from an adult. This session is best for swimmers that need assistance floating in water.


In this session, your swimmer will get comfortable in the large pool with heads above the water.


Swimmers must be able to float & be able to do a basic arm stroke that moves them in a forward motion in the water.  

In this session, your swimmer will progress into swimming with their heads under water.

Stroke Development

Swimmers must be able to swim independently, with head under water and have general knowledge of different swim strokes. 


In this session, your swimmer will start to learn stoke technique for all four swim strokes.

Private Lessons

Sign up for private lessons at the front desk

With many of our Lifeguards being current or past competitive swimmers, you will not find a better private lesson program around.  Whether your swimmer still needs floaties or your swimmer knows how to do all four swim strokes, he or she will receive 1-on-1 uninterrupted attention to build confidence and swimming skills.
