Frequently Asked Questions
Participating in year-round swim lessons is the most effective way for your child to become a safe and confident swimmer and helps them retain more knowledge for longer periods of time. Swimming occasionally throughout the year can create a gap in swimming skills. Children may then have to relearn those skills upon returning to swim lessons instead of immediately jumping into new skills.
We recommend year-round swimming lessons for children because the continuity helps them retain more knowledge for a longer period of time. With the gap created by seasonal swimming lessons, children tend to regress from their swimming skill level; this ultimately results in having to refresh those skills before they can build new skills.
We provide small class sizes to help ensure a safe environment for your child to learn to swim.
- Our Group Lessons have a maximum of 4 students to 1 instructor—one of the lowest ratios in the industry.
- Our Semi-Private Lessons have a class ratio of 2 students to 1 instructor.
- Our Private Lessons provide one-on-one instruction.
