Swimming is one of those life skills everyone should have, if only for safety reasons. Fortunately, swimming is also great fun, opening up opportunities to be competitive or eventually try other water sports.

That’s not all. You can’t beat swimming for building cardiovascular fitness and all-over muscle strength. And, since it’s easy on joints, swimming offers an ideal way to stay fit as you age, or make a comeback after an injury.

So jump in…we offer year-round swim lessons for all ages and abilities, from the most tentative child to the beginner adult or someone looking to simply improve their technique. Our swimming programs are designed to help you develop your skills progressively. Plus, we offer special opportunities for youth to join a noncompetitive swim team
