Swim Lessons


General Information

For more than 40 years, the Innis Arden Swimming Club has been teaching kids of all ages water safety and proper swim technique. Our highly trained teachers provide a safe, fun and effective learning environment for all students.

The lesson program is open to anyone in the community and is designed to allow students to progress at the rate most suitable for their own personal needs and capabilities. We strive to encourage independence, build swimmers confidence and teach strong stroke-based swimming skills.
Group lessons are open to all children 3 and up. Individual private and semi-private lessons are also offered throughout the summer, talk to your favorite guards to learn more.
