Jump into summer with our Learn-to-Swim Lesson Program! Join Shark School for group lessons, focusing on the development and refinement of swim strokes, water safety, and lake and boating safety.
If your child is unable to attend the full, two week session, sign up is not recommended. Our classes
build upon what is taught each day, and when swimmers miss a class, they fall behind and do not receive the
full benefit of the course.
Summer 2019 Dates
Our program offers (5) different skills levels. From developing water comfort for our beginners,
to stroke refinement for the more experienced swimmers, we have a level for everyone.
We no longer ask parents to determine which course level your child falls in to. Instead, a maximum
of (25) students will be accepted for each session. On the first day of the session, each swimmer
will be evaluated, and placed in their appropriate level based on their current swim skills. Parents can
assist with this determination by completing the "Swim Skills" information section on the registration
The fee for our "Shark School" Program is $150. Costs are per session, per child.
Each child will: receive a Shark School t-shirt and a sling bag upon completion of their session.
(One t-shirt/bag per child, per season)
To enroll your child is our "Shark School" program, please download the following registration
form and submit with the registration fee. As sessions become full, information will be updated here.
