Group Lessons

Indoor Lessons are taught at Sachs Recreation Center.
Outdoor Lessons are taught at Mitchell Pool.

Parent Tot: 6mo – 3 years

Play games, sing songs, and learn how to swim with your infant or toddler in a group lesson. Participate in instructor led songs and activities designed to get you more comfortable swimming with your young child. Skills covered: gliding, floats, kicking, submerging, and passing.

Guppies: 2 – 4 years

This toddler focused class is a bridge between parent tot and open swim lessons where participants play instructor led games in the splash pad at Mitchell Pool. If your toddler is ready to walk and play without a parent in the water but not quite ready to be in the big pool join this class. They’ll play fun and effective group games designed to build confidence and begin gliding with their face in the water. Skills covered: submerging, floating, gliding, kicking, arm circles, rule following, group activities, and group play.

Open Swim Lessons: 3+

For all swimmers over 3 years old. Open to all ability levels, swimmers will be placed in like-skill groups with ratios of 1:5 instructor to swimmer or lower. Every effort is made to reduce class size. Swimmers will focus on high repetition of skills with emphasis on fun and effective activities and challenges. Classes range from beginners ready to start going underwater to swimming all four competitive strokes. Skills covered: submerging, glides, front crawl, back crawl, side breathing, breaststroke, butterfly, streamline, flip turns, open turns.

Advanced Swim Lessons: 5+ and at least Level 3

Intended as a bridge class from swim lessons to COHO Swim Club, these classes run like a mini swim team practice. Swimmers will focus on freestyle with side breathing and backstroke as well as peppered practice of butterfly and breaststroke. Skills covered: streamline, freestyle, backstroke, butterfly, breaststroke, flip turns, open turns.
