Fall Lessons!!

Learn to Swim with Team DASH

For more information, contact Mari Hammel - [email protected]



Lessons are open to swimmers 5 years old and older.  We are hoping to return to group lessons in the future and will be able to add in 3 and 4 year old swimmers at that time.  


ONLY staff & students are allowed on the pool deck.


Showering / changing clothes is NOT ALLOWED at the Aquatic Center. Bathrooms ARE available, but to reduce potential exposure, PLEASE try to eliminate usage by taking care of this at home prior to arrival.


The spectator area will be open for families to watch lessons; we ask that spectators be limited to 2 per family. do not attend if you have any COVID-19 symptoms. To allow for social distancing during lesson's transition, we ask that you remain in the stands following lessons and your child will be brought upstairs to you.

As a club member of USA Swimming, who relies on the insurance provided to members, we WILL need to follow the most stringent standards still in place, those of the CDC. Anyone who is fully vaccinated (2 weeks past 2nd shot), may go without a mask. Those who are not will still be asked to mask and maintain a social distance from those who are un-masked. As 11 & younger have not yet been allowed to be vaccinated, we know they all will need to be masked. Beyond that, it's on the "honor system". 

Please be respectful of others choices and situations.

Private Lessons

Private or semi-private swim lessons allow the participant to work at a personalized level to achieve swim goals. Semi-Private lessons must be with swimmers of similar ability and must be approved by the Director of Instruction.
Private swim lessons are good way to help swimmers focus on a particular skill, or to help overcome a fear of the water.
Private lessons will be taught by our DASH Instructors.
