Take a moment to review our Swim Lesson Policy.

All lessons are 30 minutes long with the exception of the competitive stroke program, which is 1 hour. There are no refunds or make ups for missed classes, and parents must stay in the designated observation area while the swim lesson takes place. Please take the time to review our entire swim lesson policy before joining us in the water.
