Safety First

We’re taking action to ensure a safer environment for families and staff that goes beyond the traditional safety standards you would expect at our schools and in our well maintained pools. 

Upon reopening our facilities our Safety Standards will include staff health screenings, social distancing throughout the building, heightened and repetitious cleaning/disinfection and more.  Preparation and planning from state and health department guidelines create safer environments for our families and employees. Please read our full Safety First plan below. 

Summer 2020 - Private Lesson Learning Only

1:1 –  30 min Private
$50 per student    

2:1  – 30 min Semi Private
$40 per student, per lesson
(siblings similar skill level only)

Update!  Following guidelines from state and health departments we will NOT be reopening our schools with group lessons. We anticipate the near future when we can once again offer our traditional group learning format.

However, keeping safety and progress in mind, we will be offering Private Lessons starting this Summer 2020 quarter.  This allows us to incorporate social distancing guidelines from our state and health department while increasing maximum learning potential for each of our students.  Private Lessons offer a unique limited time and savings opportunity. Undivided attention to your student can be a game changer for learning, retention and swimming success this summer!  Please read our full Private Lesson Learning plan to get a better idea of what to expect.
