Learn-to-Swim Holiday Program

Class sizes are small to ensure children receive maximum supervision and enjoyment. Each class runs for 45-60 minutes and participants can attend every day of the week for all levels. These intensive lessons provide children with ample practice time to develop many new skills and to overcome any hurdles.

Please note: make-up classes are not available for holiday intensive programs. Refunds are provided on presentation of a medical certificate.
