Ages: 7 years old to 14 years old. Children 7 and 8 years old must have taken at least 2 sessions of the youth beginner class or have supervisor approval in order to register for youth intermediate. The youth intermediate classes are for the more advanced swimmers looking to improve on their skills and speed. This is our most advanced class where the focus is more on speed and technique while incorporating new strokes.

Our swim lessons teach the children basic swimming skills along with semi advanced stroke development and personal safety in the water, while encouraging speed and fun through games. Skills range from beginner to advanced and children will be grouped together on the first day according to their swim ability.




Our swim lessons run consistently throughout the year with days of the week and times of the classes staying exactly the same. The swim session dates for the rest of the year are as listed:

September 6th – October 15th (6 weeks)
