Swim Lessons

Group Swim Lessons

The East Gate Swim & Tennis Club is delighted to announce the return of our Mini-Gators! The Mini-Gators program provides a group swim lesson and pre-team experience for our youngest gators who are not yet able to swim one length of the pool.Starting Monday, June 18th, the Mini-Gators will meet each weekday afternoon through Friday, July 13th (except for July 4th) from 3:30 to 4:20 p.m. for organized instruction. These classes will be led by our new East Gate Assistant Swim Coach Bethany Hamson. Bethany is fully certified and has three years of swim instruction with the Robin Hood swim team in Silver Spring.

The Mini-Gators program is open to children age 5 and older. This may include “never-evers” who are just learning to swim, children reluctant to put their head under water, and those with some swim ability but not yet able to perform a stroke proficiently enough to get across the pool.

The fee for all 19 lessons is $125. Space is limited, so reserve your spot by emailing Steve Mister at with your child’s name and age to hold a space. Payment is due by June 1st so we can allow children off the waiting list after that time.

Private Swim Instruction for All Ages

East Gate swim coaches are available for private swimming lessons for both children and for adults. Whether learning the basics for the first time, or looking to improve your strokes and flip turns, our instructors can create a lesson just for you. More information for the 2018 season coming soon.
