Elite Sports Clubs offers a variety of swim lessons for all ages, which are available to members only. Our swim program offers parent-child classes as well as group levels 1-4 where beginners start by learning breath control, safety skills, and the crawl; to our more advanced classes where they practice lap swimming with flip turns and refine all the strokes. Adult lessons are also available from “I want to learn how to swim” to refining your strokes.

How Our Swim Lessons Work

Group Swim Lessons

Kids will strive for new levels with incentive prizes and report cards! Beginners start by learning breath control, safety skills, and the crawl; whereas our more advanced classes practice lap swimming with flip turns and refine all the strokes, and are introduced to competitive swimming.

Each youth swim lesson has an instructor-to-swimmer ratio typically between 4:1 and 8:1, depending on the level.
