Race Aquatics Swim Lessons have been resumed on a limited basis. Please see the Group Lessons 2021 tab under "Lessons" for more information. If you have any questions, please contact Lauren Miller at [email protected]org for more information.

 Option 1: Group Lessons

Group lessons are for children ages 3+ looking to become more comfortable in the water or to join the swim team. These lessons are offered Monday-Thursday evenings between 4:30-6:30 and are 30 minutes long. Our sessions are often multiple weeks long and you have the option of choosing either Monday/Wednesday lessons or Tuesday/Thursday lessons. The focus of these lessons is proficiency in kicking on the stomach with a kickboard, floating and kicking on the back, swimming the freestyle with the face in the water, and swimming the backstroke.

Standard Class times for Fall/Winter/Spring:

   A: 4:30-5

   B: 5-5:30 

   C: 5:30-6

   D: 6-6:30 

Ability Levels:

     Beginner: the child is new to the water and needs hands on assistance at all times

     Intermediate: the child can jump into the water and swim back to the wall, or to an instructor, without assistance

     Advanced: the child knows how to perform a basic freestyle or backstroke without assistance

***if we determine that your child belongs in a different group after the session has begun, you may be asked to switch lesson times

How to add your child's name to the roster:

There is NO ONLINE REGISTRATION FOR LESSONS.  You will need to email [email protected] with the following information:

  • Child's name
  • Age
  • Ability level
  • Preferred times (please provide at least 2)
  • Sessions you would like to register for

Please see "Group Lessons 2021" Tab for more information on group lesson sessions, time options, and pricing.


Option 2: Private Lessons (limited availability)

Our private lesson option is available year-round. Private lessons are available to all individuals aged 2+, including adults. These lessons are scheduled based on yours and the instructor’s availability and can be determined on a week-by-week basis. Our facility is open in the evenings between 3:30-7pm, so all lessons must be done during this time period (hours may change during the summer months); however, private lessons must also be scheduled around our group classes which are from 4:30-6:30. All lessons are 30 minutes long.

Pricing Information:

      6 lessons = $165

      4 lessons = $120

The purpose of private lessons:

  • An opportunity for your child to get started in the water before they meet the minimum age requirement for group lessons (3 years old)
  • For your child to receive extra technique work
  • To learn the butterfly and breaststroke which are not taught during group lessons
  • For those families that cannot commit to the group lesson schedule
  • For adults looking to become more comfortable in the water
