Get your goggles ready!  The Wave Swim Lessons are a year-round program for ages six months to Adult. The Swim Lessons are housed in our indoor Natatorium in comfortable 82-84 degree water. The Wave Swim School's mission is to provide quality swim instruction where students will be engaged, learn, and have fun in a safe environment.  Our goal is that all students finish their camps with a positive experience of swimming and to promote a life-long love of the water.  We start with fundamental swimming skills and strokes and build into stroke efficiency while including safety skills at every level. 

We offer sessions Monday through Thursday during the evenings, Saturday-only, and Sunday-only sessions.  Each lesson is 25-45 minutes long depending on level and session.  There are no refunds for missed sessions, and you must show up in a swimsuit and bring your own towel, as our locker rooms are currently closed.  Join us and take home valuable life-long skills!

Swim Lesson Program Overview

The Wave has designed a new learn-to-swim program, which should prove to be more beneficial to our swimmers. The chart below describes in detail how the program works. After your child masters all three Turtle levels, you can then choose which strokes your child will tackle next. Freestyle is the basis for all swim strokes, which is why we begin with the Turtle camps. Next, you can choose backstroke, breaststroke, or butterfly. We hope this new camp format will provide your child with a love of swimming!

New! - Swim Lesson Report Cards 

Use the link below to check participant report cards and progress. Report cards will be posted within 24 hours after completion of the swim lesson session by your instructor. Once you click the link, you will use the students ActiveNet customer ID number to view the report card. Your ActiveNet customer ID number can be found on the students receipt or retrieved at our front desk.

Choosing a Level

The prerequisite for any camp is the minimum age requirement for the camp, and successfully passing the previous camp or showing all the equivalent skills. Choose the camp where the student has mastered the skills listed as prerequisite for that camp, meaning they can perform each skill at least three times successively, as described. Students are grouped in camps based first on skill, then on age.

Please note: Staff may combine and/or cancel classes due to the needs of the students and/or program. There are no make-up lessons for missed classes.

**Please be aware of Holiday Closures.
