About: Our Learn to Swim program is based on stroke development. Houston Hydra offers a tailored service for your child starting at age 4+. The process consists of two, thirty-minute lessons per week with a trained instructor. Swimmers will learn floating, kicking, streamline, freestyle, and backstroke. If desired, once they have mastered these two strokes, the instructor will have your swimmer evaluated for the next group to learn breaststroke and butterfly, flip turns, dives and more.


Location: Currently lessons take place at Cy-Ranch High School Aquatic Center located on the left side of the school. (10700 Fry Rd, Cypress, TX 77433).

Will I be notified via email about pool changes? We only send pool change emails if the change is the day of. Otherwise, it is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to check the practice schedule at the start of each week.

Are there make up lessons for practice missed due to a holiday? No, we do not make up lessons due to holidays. We balance this out by only billing four weeks per month instead of billing five weeks during certain months with more weeks.

Who do I contact for an evaluation if I want to see what group my child belongs in? If they cannot swim Freestyle and Backstroke for the length of the pool without stopping, you will register them in Jackrabbit (link provided on Learn to Swim page). If they can swim free and back, you may contact [email protected] for an evaluation.

How will I know when it is time for my child to change groups? When the instructor feels your child is ready, they will notify a coach on deck for approval of group change. The instructors will then let you know if the coach has approved the group change.

What equipment does my child need? A comfortable swimsuit and goggles. Please tie your child’s hair back so it is not distracting or in the way when swimming.
