Swim School

Family Wellness Swim School takes pride in our exciting water-safe program, where each child progresses at their own pace. Through positive reinforcement, practice and patience, students learn water-safe swimming skills while having fun.

Lessons are offered for everyone ages 6 months through adulthood. Classes are once per week for 30 minutes to encourage year-round lessons. Families that want to swim more than once per week are encouraged to register for multiple days. Classes are structured by age and ability to accommodate varying skill levels within each age group. Student to teacher ratios are 4:1 except for Parent/Baby and Parent/Child classes which are 6:1. Our goal is to teach your child in a fun and safe environment that builds confidence, self-esteem and a feeling of accomplishment.

Private Swim Lessons

This is a great option for students to receive one-on-one attention and extra practice to refine skills. Instructors will communicate with parents to ensure the class is working towards agreed upon goals. Lessons are scheduled by arrangement and the cost is $40/30-minute lesson for members and $80/30-minute lesson for non-members.

Semi-Private Lessons

Semi-Private Lessons are an option for multiple students from the same household or friends/relatives of similar skill level to join together. Semi-private lessons may have two to four kids. It is recommended the students be close in skill level so the instructor can tailor the lessons to the skills of all participants. Lessons are scheduled by arrangement and the cost is $40/30-minute lesson for members and $80/30-minute lesson for non-members.

Adaptive Swim Lessons

These one-on-one lessons are for swimmers with special needs and are tailored towards the skills of each participant. Instructors will communicate with parents to ensure the class is working towards agreed upon goals. Lessons are scheduled by arrangement and the cost is $20/30-minute lesson for members and $40/30-minute lesson for non-members.

Private Swim Coaching

Our Private Swim Coaching program is intended for triathletes and other adults looking to improve their swimming strokes. We work with you one-on-one to address your specific needs and help you achieve your swimming goals. Instruction will focus on improving stroke technique in the areas of body position and balance, pull and kick efficiency, breathing patterns and core connection. Advice will also be provided for swimming conditioning, workouts, and racing and open water swimming. The main focus will be on front crawl, but other areas such as backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, or flip turns can receive instruction by request. Participants should know how to swim at least 100 yards front crawl without assistance. Lessons are scheduled by arrangement and the cost is $40/30-minute lesson for members and $80/30-minute lesson for non-members.

Swim School Credit/Refund Policy

If you apply for a refund one week prior to the program starting, then a full credit can be given. It is imperative to give at least one week notice due to the wait-lists for our swim school program. Once a class begins, no credit will be given. There will be no credit/refund due to weather-related cancellations. No credit is given for membership or missed classes, and in order to keep our low 4:1 swimmer to instructor ratio classes cannot be made up during a different lesson.
