Learn to Swim

Pick a date and a time at your leisure...and come prepare to learn

Free Swim Test Day
This new offering is intended for children who plan on being enrolled in our swim lessons. In sessions past, parents might have enrolled their child(ren) in a certain level and then after the first lesson - they get moved to another level. It is our hope that attendees to the free test day will have a firm understanding of which level to place their child.
