WELCOME to CIA's Learn to Swim School!  

CIASS will continue to offer high quality private and semi-private swim lessons to children starting at age 3.  Our instructors include some of the best swim coaches and swimmers in the state, but more importantly we all share a love for the sport of swimming and the mission of saving lives, one life at a time.

Our Lessons are geared towards water safety, beginning with basic movement through the water and progressing to swim team prep.  No matter what the skill level and comfort with the water, CIASS programming provides individualization and FUN for the swimmer!
