About Summer Swim

Classes are available for various skill levels.

Changes for Summer 2019

We are introducing Water Babies! Water babies must have a parent with them in the water at all times - Ages 6 months to 4 years old. Swim diapers must be worn at all times and breaks are encouraged! It can be cold/sunny, wetsuits and sun coverings are encouraged.

White level swim lessons start at 4 years old. If your swimmer is younger than 4 years old, they may only partake in the Water Baby Lessons.

Our classes are in a two-week block, this two-week block includes 8 lessons. Most of these blocks are Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday of each week. The class dates are listed below. We still have Saturday lessons.

Mid-morning was a very popular time on the survey, to help accommodate swimmers we are adding more morning sessions.

Jr. Guard is now a two-week block with eight 4-hour days. 12 Noon - 4pm. We have one at the start of June and one at the start of July. Jr guard requires a swim test. There is a swim test April 13th at 9am and one on April 16th at 3:30 pm. If you need to schedule one outside of these times, please email

Discover SCUBA This is a new program for our graduating swimmers. There is a swim test and a medical form needed for this class. There is a swim test April 13th at 9am and one on April 16th at 3:30 pm. If you need to schedule one outside of these times, please email

Staggered start time of classes. In past years, all classes have started at the same time and this has caused massive confusion/frustration over changing areas and bathrooms. We are hoping this can address some of these changes.
