swimming in the pool

Swim for a workout
Swimming is a great workout. It is low impact, serves as both a cardio and strength workout, is great for your lungs, can make you a better runner, works typically underworked muscles, and anyone can do it (if you don't know how to swim - don't worry, we offer lessons!).

Adult lessons
If you'd like to learn to swim or if you want to work on perfecting your stroke, swim lessons are for you!

We offer group lessons that meet twice a week for four weeks (a total of eight lessons) for $55. 

There are two levels of lesson for adults:

  • Beginner Adult: Overcome a fear of water and learn basic skills such as floating, gliding, kicking, rhythmic breathing, and treading water.
  • Intermediate Adult: This level is for adults with no fear of water and who possess beginning swimming skills (must be able to kick and breathe using a kickboard for 25 yards without stopping). Students will learn or refine front crawl, back crawl, and develop comfort in deep water. 

You can also do private swim lessons as a time convenient for you for a cost of $25 per lesson.

Semi-private lessons are also available for two people. The cost is $20 per person, per lesson.
