Group Swim Lessons

Our group swim lessons have low student to teacher ratios and are taught by Red Cross Certified instructors. With sessions going all year round, right now is the best time to take the plunge into group lessons! 

Due to COVID-19 Guidance for reopening pools. Lafayette’s Learn to Swim Program is taking steps to keep you and your children safe during our swim lesson programming. We had to adjust our program to continue to meet you and your child’s swimming needs. The aquatics division has altered all Dolphin – Level III beginner classes to include a parent to aid the instructor using the parent & tot format. 


What does this mean?

To ensure proper social distancing, parents are asked to participate in the class with their children. Each parent will help the instructor with their child’s body position in the water to eliminate physical contact with non-family members.

We offer the following type of youth lessons:

    • Beginner Dolphin Goals: Comfort in water, Going under water independently, Front and back floats, forward movement, Safety Topics for the parent and child. Pre-requisite: Child must be ready to participate in a group setting.
