A General Note to All Members:
During swimming lessons, the pool is closed.
Lessons run Monday–Friday 4:00–7:00 pm and Saturdays 9:00 am–1:00 pm.

The closure is due to the fact that the instructors are the lifeguards at that time and are not able to safely watch other areas of the pool.
So even if we only have 1 or 2 students participating in a class, the lifeguards’ attention is on that class, and not on the rest of the pool.
Thank you for your understanding!

CLASS

SIZES

To ensure the highest level of instruction, class sizes will not exceed 4 participants.

We also offer a limited number of: Private lessons 1:1 > 30 minute duration, $20/lesson Semi-Private lessons 2:1 > 30 minute duration. $10/person each class.

Due to the difference in requirements and skills, Instructors cannot accommodate 2 different levels in one class if they are more than 1 level apart, and cannot accommodate a pre-school/swim kids. Example Sunfish and level 1 are not manageable, but level 1 & 2 would be.

If you are unsure what level your child is, a swimming assessment can be done by any of the lifeguards prior to registration. Please call the pool deck at ext. 142 to set up a time.
