Small Group Swimming Lessons

Small Group Swimming Lessons

Small group swimming lesson format will be different this year than in previous years. We will be running half-hour sessions each day for two weeks in a group. This will allow for more time in the pool overall, shorter lessons each day to help keep the kids focused and learning and will allow for more sessions so groups are smaller than in previous years. Kids will be split up by ages as well as ability. Competencies for each group are listed and your children will be evaluated at the end of sessions so you can see results.
