Group Classes

Group classes are 30 minute in length with a 4:1 ratio. Our students are placed into group lessons according to swimming ability and age to ensure all students in a group are within the same developmental range. The small class size creates a structured, positive, and caring learning environment for your child. Statistics show that children learn best through fun!
