During the school year (September - June), we offer classes on weekday evenings and Sunday mornings (view schedule below). There are multiple options, and you can sign up your child for more than one option (e.g. you can sign up for Monday/Wednesday and also Tuesday/Thursday). To make sure that we have consistency with instructors, we do not allow students to sign up for just Monday or just Wednesday.

  • Note: During thunderstorms, we will cancel lessons. We will credit your account for any cancelled classes.
  • Note: All parents must remain off the pool deck.

February Calendar


March Calendar



We offer a pre-competitive program called Pre-Team for swimmers that are beyond our learn-to-swim, but still getting ready for our competitive program. Our Pre-Team sign up follows the same registration sessions as our learn-to-swim program. Pre-Team meets four times per week for 30 minutes, and we encourage swimmers to come all four days if possible to allow for continued progress.

  • Monday & Wednesday PM: 7:00-7:30 PM
  • Tuesday & Thursday PM: 6:00-6:30 PM

Technique & Fitness

We offer a non-competitive program called Technique & Fitness for swimmers who would like to improve their swimming skills and fitness levels but can only commit to a couple practices per week. Technique & Fitness sign up follows the same registration sessions as our learn-to-swim program. Technique & Fitness meets twice per week for 30 minutes.

  • Tuesday & Thursday PM: 7:30-8:00 PM
