Swimming Lessons 2017

Headed by Wendy Yons

Swim lessons are designed to help your child learn how to be safe in and around water.  During swim lessons your child will be introduced to new skills and practice them during the lesson.  Water safety skills will be taught along with swimming skills.  Remember all children learn at different rates.  If you have any questions during the course of your child’s lesson please ask your child’s instructor.


All sessions run for 2 week sessions except our Saturday session.  Sessions 1, 2, and 3 are Monday through Thursday. Session 4 & 5 are Saturday only for the 3 Saturdays in June & July.  We will use Fridays as a make-up day if we have to cancel a lesson during sessions 1-3.
