ORCA Swim Lessons

Click on the below tabs for a description of our class types; Semi-Private (4:1), Private (1:1), or Group (8:1 offered only in the summer at Villa Park H.S.), and choose which one best fits the needs of your child. When deciding which level to register your child for, carefully match your child's current skill level with the level description. For example, if your child can swim using alternate arms and legs both on their stomach and on their back for about 15 feet, they are ready for a Level 3 semi-private, private or group class. If your child cannot do these skills, they will need to register for a lower level semi-private or private class.

If a class is full, we recommend choosing a different time that is open OR choose the Wait List registration option and we will do our best to try to open another class to accommodate your request IF WE HAVE INSTRUCTORS AVAILABLE TO DO SO.
