Swim Lesson Overview

Heritage swim lessons are available beginning at the age of three and are open to all Heritage members. All swim instructors are certified Water Safety Instructors and are trained in Red Cross Lifesaving. While water safety is always paramount, we focus on providing a fun environment in which children can develop of life long love of the sport of swimming.

Suggested ages for the seven swim lesson levels are approximate, and children will progress through these levels at differing speeds. At the discretion of the instructors, children may move levels as progress and safety allow. Lessons are offered Monday through Friday from 10:15 am through 1:00 pm. See the daily calendar for specific times. 

Lessons are also open to members who participate in swim team. We encourage all of our swim team members to participate in lessons as it enhances the swimmer’s endurance and stoke technique.
