SWIM LESSON SIGN UPS WILL BEGIN IN EARLY SPRING 2017

 

Oak Hills Community Education offers children’s swimming lessons with a focus on how to be safe in and around the water. Our lessons are supervised by lifeguard-certified instructors and most of our instructors have been competitive swimmers. The program is designed for children over 4 years all the way up to adults, and students progress through the levels at their own pace, mastering the skills in one level before advancing to the next. The exception is the Infant/Parent/Toddler class which will last 30 minutes. Parents must enter with the children (ages 6 mos-4 yrs) and the purpose of the class is basically to get the child comfortable in the water. Through the use of singing, blowing bubbles, etc. the structure is very non-threatening.

Spring swim lessons start Apr 4th and are 6 weeks long, once a week for 45 minutes.  Cost is $75.

Spring Swim Schedule

Summer lessons are either once a day for two weeks or twice a week for 5 weeks.  Cost is $100.
