Learn more about our weekly swim lessons and programs

Group Lessons

Our swim lessons for kids and infants are designed to be a fun and convenient part of your family’s weekly routine. Swim once a week. All swim lessons are 30 minutes. Pricing varies by location.

Private Lessons

A swim teacher works one-on-one with your child or with another child of similar swim skills to build their swimming skills. Private/semi-private lessons are provided weekly for 30 minutes.


All in 9 Program

For families who value progress, our All in 9 Program is designed to have your child reach three major milestones in nine months. Finishing this program means your kiddo will be able to self-rescue, float independently on their back, and swim at least 25 feet.

Swim Levels and Rewards

Our curriculum is designed to teach critical survival skills with the foundational elements of swimming, and build on their skills as they progress through our 6-level system. Our monthly in-water evaluations and progress reports track your child’s progress so they graduate into the next level when they are ready, not when our schedule tells them to. Our Progress Patches serve as a reward system to celebrate every new swim skill they learn!
