Did you Know?

It’s never too late to start your child in swim lessons! Our instructors meet your child exactly where they are on their swimming journey. We understand that some children start learning to swim later than others for various reasons, including fear of the water or simply not having had the opportunity for lessons earlier. Older children may feel self-conscious that their swimming skill level is not as advanced as their peers. In this case, we recommend private lessons so they can get the basics down. They will learn faster in a one-to-one setting, and once they feel ready, they can comfortably and confidently join a group of others their age. We find that most older children can catch up quickly.
