Infant & Toddler Swim Lessons

Infant & Toddler Swim Lessons

We offer infant and toddler swim lessons for kiddos as young as 2 months of age. Our goal is to help build confidence, impart vital water safety skills, and teach students how to instinctively react in a positive manner should a water incident occur. Our private classes allow your child to progress at their own pace.  Our Baby & Me classes are designed to deepen the parent-infant bond and increase social confidence, while teaching vital water safety skills including floating, breath control, and kicking. Each class is taught at the child’s own pace with personalized attention from experienced instructors.

Children’s Swim Lessons

Children’s Swim Lessons

We offer one-on-one progressive swim lessons for children of all ages and skill levels. Learning to swim is not only a crucial life skill, but it also builds confidence and independence. Swimming is also a great way to get exercise, participate socially with other children, and enjoy special moments in the water. Whether you want your child to develop life-saving water safety skills, learn fundamental strokes, or participate in elite competitions, our private swim classes provide personalized, one-on-one instruction tailored to each student's unique needs.

Adult Swim Lessons

Adult Swim Lessons

We offer private adult swim lessons in a comfortable, stress-free, warm-water setting. No matter your age, it’s never too late to learn how to swim or to overcome a lifelong fear of the water. Whether you want to learn basic swimming fundamentals, gain endurance, or refine existing skills, our passionate instructors will help you learn the skills you need to be safe and enjoy special moments in and around the water.

Special Needs Swim Lessons

Special Needs Swim Lessons

Swimming is an important life skill with tremendous therapeutic benefits for kids with special needs. Swimming lessons can soothe sensory overload, relieve physical discomfort, and help kids learn life-saving water safety. In addition to teaching water safety skills, swimming lessons can also improve balance, coordination, strength, and range of motion. Our skilled, compassionate Saf-T-Swim instructors have extensive experience teaching kids with a variety of unique needs. 

Swim Camps & Clinics

Swim Camps & Clinics

Our SwimJams are a great way to get a child in the water multiple times in a week. Your child will swim four times in one week, for an individual lesson, really reinforcing their swimming skills in a shorter amount of time. This is a perfect opportunity for kids to learn who are involved in other sports or activities and can't commit to lessons for longer periods of time. Our Swim Clinics are a great way for your advanced swimmer to perfect their techniques or work on advanced strokes. The Swim Clinics are offered for an hour to boost endurance as well!

Swim Team Prep

Swim Team Prep

Our swim team training program is perfect for young swimmers who want to put their swimming skills to use and continue to refine their swim technique. Our experienced instructors teach kids to strive for their personal best in a team environment while improving strength, speed, and endurance. We teach proven swimming techniques that include all the fundamental strokes swimmers need to compete. Practices are designed to be challenging, instructional and fun.

Swim Party

Swim Party

Celebrate special occasions with a pool party any time of the year at Saf-T-Swim. Perfect for team parties, birthdays, fundraising events, or any other special gathering, our swim parties provide a fun, hassle-free way to celebrate with up to 24 guests! Plus, your party will never be rained out!

Family Open Swim

Family Open Swim

Our Open Family Swim is a great opportunity to get in the water with your entire family. The more often children are in the water practicing their skills, the stronger swimmers they will become. Let your kid show off for you and see up close everything they have learned! Our heated pools allow you to enjoy the fun all year long!
