We also host pool parties for guests and members!

For more information on anything regarding aquatics, contact our Aquatics Coordinator Mary Frazier

Our mission:

  1. Provide specialized training tailored to help each individual find their success in the water
  2. Equip swimmers with the ability to react in an aquatic emergency, to not only sustain their own life but to also aid those in need
  3. Bring Fun on the deck and into the water

Swim Lessons

Why wait for summer for swim lessons? Here are 5 reasons to do lessons in winter and spring:

  1. Availability and Class Sizes
    Most families that participate in a water safety program wait until the summer months.
  2. Preparedness
    Summertime in the midwest is full of pool and lakeside activities. Why wait until the exposure to risks is prevalent?
  3. Time to Pinpoint
    If you or your child has a specific fear or aversion, you have more time to train the issue and get to a comfortable place.
  4. Great Indoor Activity
    Keeps yourself and your kids moving in the winter can be rough, so indoor swim lessons create the perfect outlet.
  5. It's a Lot of Fun!
    Why limit this enjoyable activity to only the summer months?
