Group Swim Lessons Level Information

Full level descriptions are on our online store. It is very important that you read each level and enroll your child in the level that best represents their ability. If you are unsure what level to register your child for you can request an in-person registration with a swim test. A Water Safety Instructor can be available throughout the week and can quickly run your child through a skills test before registering. Please call 239-590-7701 if you are interested in this.

Private Lessons

Private lessons are scheduled one on one sessions with an instructor. Semi-private lessons are available for two swimmers looking for a more private lesson option but must be of similar abilities. All lessons are a half hour of personalized in-water instruction. Lessons are scheduled between you and your instructor based on your mutual availability and can occur at any time during our normal hours of operation but not during scheduled group lesson times due to instructor availability.

No Private Lessons Are Offered at This Time.
