Learn to Swim Spring 2021 (Saturdays) Register View Cart

Group Learn To Swim lessons are back! Our group lessons will be limited to 4 participants to a class. During classes children will be spread out 6ft apart to promote social distancing and if necessary will be required to wear their mask while they wait their turn on the wall and then remove it prior to their turn. A secondary instructor will be assigned to each class to sure that each participant gets adequate practice time. Lessons will be 30 minutes long. Only one parent/guardian will be allowed in the facility per child.

It is the responsibility of parents/guardians to monitor the health of their households. Any swimmer may be asked to leave the facility if sickness is suspected. Please ensure that any member of the family experiencing COVID-19 symptoms does not enter the facility. Temperature checks of every entering swimmer will be taken prior to being admitted into the facility. Please recognize that this is in an effort to protect every one's health and safety. 

Swim instructors teaching in the water will be wear face shields while they teach and face  masks may be asked to be worn while children wait their turn while waiting on the wall. Masks should be worn at all times except for while taking a shower and physically swimming in the pool.

All swimmers should arrive for their designated swimming time slot having already taken a shower and changed into their bathing suit. Locker rooms will be available for use, however, capacity will be limited. Our goal is to reduce the amount of time that swimmers spend in common areas. 


Sessions last for 8 weeks and meet once a week. There will be no make-ups for classes missed and no refunds for classes that cannot be attended. When a child is signed up for lessons, they are preventing another child from signing up. Due to the restrictions that we face as a facility, there can be no exceptions. 


Swimming lessons are an essential part of a child's education. Being able to swim properly increases confidence which makes time in the water an enjoyable and safe experience. In addition, swimming is a healthy, total fitness activity that lasts a lifetime. Our Learn to Swim programs are taught by certified American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors with an enthusiasm and dedication to helping children and adults achieve their swimming goals. To determine proper class placement please review the level descriptions below and contact the front desk 860-584-3837 with any questions.
