Swim Lessons

Provided in an indoor, warm-water, and wheelchair accessible pool.

Aquatics Services offer year-round, high-quality, private swim lessons for adults of all abilities who want to learn to swim or improve their swim skills. Lessons are taught by skilled and experienced professional instructors, using a progressive, standardized curriculum. The program focus is on water safety, comfort in and around the water, skill development, and the joy of aquatic exercise.

Swim lessons are taught in 10 to 14 week sessions. The week following a session is reserved for make-up lessons. For those enrolling in our Adapted Aquatics program, an initial assessment is scheduled. We will first meet with the parent, then conduct an individual in-water assessment, and develop an individualized training plan.

For individuals with physical and/or developmental disabilities, or for any child who needs extra attention or focus, we offer Adapted Aquatics which fuse recreation and water activities with therapeutic benefits. The program is personalized to meet goals set by the participant and our professional instructors who specialize in adapted aquatics.
