Learn to Swim

What are my Swim lesson options for the 2020 swim season? 

Guppies Swim Program

The Guppy program is designed to give the 2 to 3 1/2 year old child with some pool exposure an opportunity to enjoy the water though play and positive experiences.  The goal of this program is to familiarize the child with the water and learn beginning skills that will enhance their ability to progress in the water as they get older and develop physically.  Each child will be evaluated by skill level and will build upon that.  Guppies is a small group environment without parent involvement in the water.  

Guppies is a 5 week program every Tuesday and Thursday beginning June 9th to July 18th.  REGISTRATION WILL BEGIN Saturday, April 18 during LTS registration.

* No lessons June 30th or July 2nd

* 25 minute group class

* Lesson times - 1:00 PM to 1:25PM

*  Cost for the Guppy program $175.00

* 2019 Guppies are welcome to repeat the program. (If age appropriate)
