Class Descriptions

Learn to Swim

Our friendly and experienced instructors provide group swim lessons for ages 3-13 years old, from the beginner to the advanced swimmer.

Classes are divided by age group

  • Preschool levels 1-3: children aged 3-6 years old.

  • Youth Levels 1-5: children aged 7-13 years old.

Please enroll in classes based on the appropriate swim level.

Description and Prerequisites: If your child does not meet the minimum requirements of the class every effort will be made to transfer them to the appropriate level. If there are no transfer options available, a refund will be processed and your child will be dropped from the class. All applicable refund fees will apply.

After the class meets maximum enrollment, additional students will be placed on a waiting list and will be notified if/when a space becomes available. Students transferring from the waitlist will be charged a prorated fee based on the amount of remaining classes in the session.

Please note that class space is limited. Class times are subject to change. In the event of unsafe weather conditions, classes may be cancelled. Please note that flotation devices (lifejackets, water wings, etc.) are not permitted.

We offer small class ratios to improve learning, safety, and progression!

Aquatic CardioFit

This safe, fun, and effective workout uses water exercises to build muscle and reduce body fat with little or no impact to joints... all done in a heated pool to fun and energizing music. The water offers a heavier resistance than air, so participants can experience a challenging workout while the buoyancy takes away most or all of the impact to bones and joints!

Optional: Bring aquatic fitness gloves to increase resistance.

Instructor: Karen Eldridge

Aquatic NoodleFit

Set to upbeat music, this program is a low-impact/ high energy, full-body interval water workout that concentrates on using the noodle as a prop to offer additional resistance and buoyancy while we effectively perform grounded and suspended pool exercises interspersed with cardio blasts to develop muscle tone (upper and lower body + abdominals) and cardiovascular fitness. Please join us in our heated pool and splash your way to a healthier you.

*Bring your own pool noodle.
