Help kids be safe around water. Y swim lessons build water skills at all levels with the goal to teach children confidence and the importance of being safe in and around the water. Our program uses a guided-discovery, problem-solving teaching approach in a positive, caring, and supportive environment for children ages 6 months through 12 years.

Wonderful swim lesson program! Having taught swimming and run pools for 10 years, I'm very picky about who I'll trust with my two-year-old around the water and they put me right at ease, putting precautions in place where necessary for his age, but also truly teaching him to swim at a young age! -- Kellie B., swim parent
