    Splish, splash and jump right in! Swim Lessons are a great way to introduce your children to the fun and safety of the water. Our learners will play games, sing songs, and learn the essentials for water safety and fun. A study conducted by the National Institute of Health1 demonstrated that swim lessons should be considered prevention, as swim lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by nearly 88% in children (1-4 years). Our Red Cross certified Water Safety Instructor has 8 years of experience teaching learners of all ages and abilities how to enjoy being in and around water. So, grab a bathing suit, towel, and a smile and join us for fun in the pool!
