Adult Small Group Lessons

Beginner Adult Swim: Designed for adult swimmers with little to no experience in the water. We will work to help conquer the fear of swimming, and introduce basic concepts of stroke technique and water safety. The majority of this class takes place in the shallow end of the pool. Wednesdays, 6:15-7:00pm.

Intermediate Adult Swim: For adult swimmers who feel comfortable in the water and are looking to improve technique and learn new strokes. This class covers more advanced, deep-end skills such as diving, treading water, and fitness swimming, along with continued stroke technique and safety skills. Tuesdays, 5:30-6:15pm.

Register now for the next 7-week session, that runs September 11 – October 29.

Adult Private Lessons

You will work one-on-one with a swim instructor to meet your specific goals. Our team will cater the 30, 45, or 60 minute lesson, working with you on your technique, breathing and other parts of your stroke to refine and make you a stronger swimmer. Our adult private lessons are for those who are scared of the water to swimmers training for triathlons. Underwater & above water video footage is also used if you are willing to watch yourself swim! Contact Jess Lukas, Aquatics Director, at [email protected] with questions or to schedule a lesson.
