Group class vs Private lessons

If you have a child that is fearful or hesitant of the water, no worries. Our team of well trained teachers can handle anything! Seriously! It is usually harder on nervous parents than it is on the kids. We would like to introduce the fearful children to lessons in a more intimate setting, so please call us so that we can arrange a free one-on-one before enrolling them in a group class. It is important that we give you the best experience possible, and we will do everything possible to ensure that.
