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, to schedule a private or semi-private lesson schedule through the instructor of your choice.

For the 2021 season, we will be mindful of social distancing and masking for all of our swimmers. In the early beginner, beginner, and advanced beginner classes teachers will be in the water with kids. However, because of social distancing we will need to keep the sizes of the classes smaller this summer.

When possible, our advanced beginner and intermediate classes will be taught from the pool deck.
