Swim classes are forming! Is “learn to swim” on your bucket list or are you looking to improve your overall efficiency in the water? We have two four-week programs for you – Learn to Swim and Swim Technique.

Learn to Swim is ideal for those with little to no experience in the water, even those with fear of or anxiety around the water. Over the course of four weeks, you will gain confidence in the water and begin to gain the skills necessary to start swimming laps.

Swim Technique is perfect for those who have learned to swim but want to up their game, whether improving their cardiovascular endurance, decreasing body fat or planning to participate in a swim event. During the four week course, you will progressively improve your stroke, breathing techniques and overall swim efficiency, resulting in your ability to complete a continuous .5-1 mile in the pool.

Classes will be offered Wednesdays at 6 and 7 PM for $120 for the four-week program. Program includes semi-private coaching and homework.
