Group Swim Lessons

Our Group Swim Lessons welcome students of all skill levels, including beginner, intermediate, and advanced swimmers. We offer separate group lessons for children and adults. Our swim instructors will classify a student’s skill level and will adjust the day’s lesson plan accordingly to fit each student. Our classifications and goals for each are listed below. The goal for students is not to advance quickly, but to successfully grasp and perform each skill and improve their overall swimming ability.


Beginners are students with little or no experience in water. The lessons will acclimate the student to being in the water and teach them basic swimming techniques. The main goal in this level is to get the students comfortable and moving in the water.


Intermediate students are more comfortable in the water, and have experience in basic swimming techniques. In this stage, students will begin to learn more stroke techniques and swim medium to longer distances on their own in addition to gaining endurance and comfort in the water.


Advanced students have comfortable knowledge of swimming techniques. Students at this level will have the opportunity to refine their skills and techniques and achieve complete comfort in and around the water.
