WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SWIMMING?

Swimming is a life-long skill that everyone can enjoy, regardless of age. Our goal is to help kids and adults overcome fears, build confidence in the water, learn water safety and develop skills that last a lifetime.  Among its many benefits, swimming teaches life lessons of sport and sportsmanship. Our instructors are excited to help teach you to swim!

Pool Safety: Our policy regarding inclement weather/thunder storms is to evacuate the pool area for a minimum of 30 minutes past last observation. The Redwoods Group, American Red Cross and National Lightning Safety Institute continue to recommend the proactive action of removing swimmers from indoor pools as a lightning storm approaches and until after it passes. This protocol includes keeping swimmers out of the showers, away from telephones, and clear of metallic objects or large expanses of glass until after the storm passes. Leaving the premises is also not advised.
