Group Lessons

If you are interested in being added to the 2021 email list for swimming lessons, please email with the following information:
– You and your child’s name
– Your child’s date of birth
– What your child can do in the water (to determine appropriate level placement)

Group lessons are offered by the week. They include 5 one hour classes, Monday- Friday. Two swimming levels are taught each hour. Check the schedule for available classes. Each group has an adult teacher and a helper.  There are 5-6 children in a group, depending on the level.  If you need a description of the levels, please check out the videos on the home page or email

Cost:  $200 for five 1-hour lessons every weekday for 1 week

$210 for the Junior Lifesaving Class

$155 for the Parent & Me Class

How many weeks should my child take?  I suggest 2 weeks in the same summer for Levels 1 & 2.  The repetition really helps the children get comfortable and swim farther!

Bring:  Please bring your child already dressed in a swim suit and flip-flops they can easily get on and off themselves, as well as a towel and goggles with their name on the strap.  In addition to goggles, Level 5 students need to bring a mask, snorkel, and fins.

Drop Off & Pick Up: 1742 Carruthers Pl 38112 is my address. It is really important for carpool to run as smoothly as possible with the number of children we teach each summer. Please turn onto my street from Hawthorne. If you enter Carruthers Place from Evergreen, you will be driving on the opposite side of the road from my house. This would make it difficult for drop off and pick up as my neighbors have asked that the parents do not turn around in their drive-ways in an effort to get into the carpool line. We will be waiting for you 5 minutes before lessons start. Once you have turned onto Carruthers from Hawthorne, please get in line and wait for us to direct you to one of the cones where you will drop off or pick up your child since parents do not stay for group lessons. Please do not park and walk your child to us or block my neighbors’ driveways as you are waiting!

Rain: Please do not assume that lessons are canceled because it is raining at your house. It may not be raining here! If a lesson is canceled, it will be made up on Saturday of that same week at the same time.
We will send out a group text if classes are cancelled. To receive these please do the following: on the link:

Make Up Lessons:  We only make up for bad weather, if your child gets sick or injured, or a family emergency.  We are unable to make up for vacations, birthday parties, or sporting events.   Make up days are always on Saturday at the same time as the scheduled weekly lesson. With the number of children and lessons involved we have to hold to this policy.  Thank you for understanding.

Celebration Day:  Please come the last 30 MINUTES of class on Friday.   All family members are welcome!  All siblings are invited to swim during play time at the end.
