Relax in the swirl pool or push yourself further with laps for 10 minutes. Pool is sectioned off to ensure participants remain 6 feet apart during class. Call ahead to book your spot.

Social Bubble Lessons

In an effort to continue to safely provide swimming lessons we will be offering Social Bubble Lessons for the foreseeable future.

Create your own groups:

  • Children must be in the same social bubbles and have similar swimming abilities.
  • Choose the timeslot that works for you.
  • Minimum enrollment of 2 children to a maximum of 5 per bubble/$64.75 per child for half hour lessons lasting 9 weeks. 

Instructors teach from the deck in order to comply with social distancing guidelines.
