Guppy

GUPPY

Guppy classes are the first level of our learn to swim program. The classes focus on water safety as well as introduce freestyle and backstroke. All classes are 30 minutes long, and the coaches are always in the water with the swimmers. 

Age range: 2-4 years old

These classes fill up quickly, so make sure to contact Coach Clare at least one month before you would like to start lessons.
