Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons:

 

Our philosophy for swim lessons is that as we gain comfort in the water, our confidence increases, we start to have fun and then we have a willingness to try new things.  This process is true throughout the entire span of our lives, so learning to swim can begin at any time.

 

We offer private, semi-private and group swim lessons.

 

Private (1:1) swim lessons are scheduled directly with the Aquatics Supervisor and are designed to meet your individual goals.  These goals are as varied as our guests and could be the basics of learning to swim, stroke refinement, or conditioning as examples.

 

Semi-private (1:2 or 1:3) swim lessons are scheduled directly with the instructor. You designate the participants and also set the goals for the group.  The instructor will work with each student at their own level.

 

Adult learn-to-swim/coaching sessions are being offered as well.  Class sizes are small to allow for individualized instruction.  Click here to register online or stop by the TRAC front desk to enroll. Cost is $10/session for members and $15/session for non-members.

 

Group swim lessons at TRAC are offered throughout the entire year.  Check back for dates and times for our summer sessions beginning on June 10th!
