Group Lessons

Introducing new Lesson Levels for easier registration; same quality lessons you can continue to rely on!

To determine which Lesson Level is appropriate for each swimmer, please refer to the chart below. Little Guppies and Sharks will be assessed by our professional aquatics staff on the first day of each session and placed into smaller groups based on their skill level. A safety ratio of 1:5 will be enforced in all classes in these groups.

For example, children between the ages of 3-6 years old who are fairly new to swimming, and who plan to take swim lessons all summer long, should register for 4 sessions of Little Guppies. They will be assessed at the beginning of each session and placed into a group of similarly skilled swimmers. Swimmers who will age out of a beginner series should register for the next age appropriate beginner series.
