Learn a life skill with our trained and experienced swim instructors. We are proud to offer a safe, nurturing and welcoming learning environment and have classes available for everyone at different stages. Our “Me and My Shadow” class is for parents and young children who are ready to be introduced to the water for the first time. Classes 1+2 are for surviving in the water, 3+4 are for developing a swim technique and levels 5+6 are for continued swim development.
