Water Babies

This introductory class is designed to introduce infants to the water while parents learn how to work with their child safely in the water. Ages: 6-17 months


This introductory class for toddlers is designed to help parents learn how to handle their child safely in the water while children learn basic swimming and water safety skills, build confidence, and become comfortable in and around the pool. Ages: 18 months to 2 years


Group lessons suitable for adult ages 16 and over. Sign up to learn how to swim, build endurance or learn new skills to enhance your stroke.


Our learn-to-swim program is divided into six program levels. Advancement from one level to the next depends on the successful completion of the prior class. We recommend placing your child in a class they are comfortable with, rather than one that is too challenging. To arrange your free assessment, call 303.289.3711.
