Swim Lessons

Class Session Information

Classes are offered in sessions of varying lengths.  In general, classes during the week are offered on Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays.  During one-week sessions, the classes are everyday Monday through Friday for one week.  Each lesson is 25 minutes long.  Lessons are scheduled on the hour and half hour.  The extra 5 minutes between lessons allows the instructors to talk to each of the parents, apprising them of their children’s progress. For a current schedule of classes, click on the "Class Schedule" link in the left-side navigation bar.

Group Classes

Group classes for the Flounder to Dolphin levels have a maximum of 3 students of similar age and ability per instructor.  Group classes for the Catfish to Olympian levels may have 3-4 students of similar age and ability per instructor.

Private Classes

We offer one-on-one instruction for any student interested in an individualized curriculum to meet personal objectives.  Private lessons are recommended for overly confident toddlers who cannot sit on the steps safely, students easily distracted by sharing time and space with others, special needs students unable to safely participate in a group class, fearful children ages 6 and older, and all adult lessons. 

Semi-Private Classes

We will schedule two students that you bring to us, to work with one instructor.

Stroke Refinement Lessons

Sunshine offers specialized lessons to fine-tune the students’ technique in swimming specific strokes.  Major improvements in technical ability to perform a stroke should be observed in a single class.  Each class is divided into skills for arm positioning, kicking style, and breathing techniques. Refinement lessons are offered in freestyle, racing backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.  Children who have already begun to learn the basics for each stroke will get the maximum benefit from the refinement lessons.  However, any child swimming at the Bluegill level and above will likely benefit from a refinement lesson.  One student per instructor, unless otherwise arranged.
