The Wave Swim Lessons
Swim Lesson Program Overview
Get your goggles ready! The Wave Swim Lessons are year-round programs for ages six months to adult. Swim Lessons are housed in our indoor Natatorium pool, 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 lessons 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.
In the summer, we offer sessions Monday through Thursday, Friday-only, and Saturday-only sessions. In the Fall, Winter, and Spring, we offer sessions Monday / Wednesday, Tuesday / Thursday, Saturday-only, and Sunday-only sessions. Each lesson is 25 minutes long, and each session is 4 classes, excluding holiday sessions which are 3-day classes. Participants must show up in a swimsuit and bring their own towel. Join us and take home valuable life-long skills!
Choosing a Level
The Wave has designed a learn-to-swim program, which should prove to be beneficial to our swimmers. The chart below describes in detail how the program works. After your child masters Turtle 2, you can then choose to take Turtle 3 or move onto another stroke of their choice. Freestyle is the basis for all swim strokes, which is why we begin with the Turtle camps. Next, you can choose backstroke (Otter), breaststroke (Octopus), or butterfly (Dolphin). We hope this swim lesson format will provide your child with a love of swimming!
The prerequisite for any lesson is the minimum age requirement for the camp, and successfully passing the previous camp or showing all the equivalent skills. Choose the lesson 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. Instructors may vary based on program needs. There are no make-up lessons or refunds for missed classes.
Our Infant classes promote water enrichment and aquatic readiness activities for parents and their infants.
Preschool lessons are designed to make children (infant to age five) comfortable in the water, while also learning the skills necessary to participate at the youth levels.
Youth lessons are designed and structured to break down the basics of each stroke for children 6-12 years old. This new class structure has been designed for maximum flexibility and efficiency. Students who have passed Jellyfish 3 to 5 years or higher may enroll in the turtle classes.
Junior Green Gators is a year-round swim team designed to introduce independent swimmers to competitive swimming. Participants will learn about competitive swimming in a non-competitive environment. Coaches will help swimmers improve their technique, endurance, and refine their stroke.

Our adaptive swim lesson offers a modified and individualized curriculum for students of all abilities to be able to learn critical water safety skills and build confidence in the water. This lesson will be the only class in the water to help reduce noise and over stimulation for students who may have specific sensory needs. No experience necessary. 6 - 18 Years
