Swimming lessons are back  and better than before! Join us at Snake Pond this summer for semi private American Red Cross swim instruction!

Semi-private lessons are being offered to swimmers of all ages and swimming abilities in groups of no more than 4 swimmers.  These lessons are perfect for siblings, cousins, neighbors, and friends who want to learn to swim together in a more individualized setting than traditional lessons offer. Each class is led by an American Red Cross certified Instructor . Due to the more individualized instruction participants tend to build stronger skill sets quicker and gain confidence in the water while having fun and limiting contacts.

Classes will run Monday, Wednesday, Friday for a  ½ hour class – 2 week session. This would give a total of 6 classes of semi-private swim instruction for $150 .
There are no credits or refunds issued for semi private lessons. Please note: there will NOT be make-up classes for cancellations due to unsafe swimming conditions (Ex:weather) Classes will be held in the rain .

All classes WILL NOW meet at Snake Pond Public Beach located at Snake Pond Rd in Forestdale.
