Artistic Swimming Summer Lesson

Summer 2023 Lessons

 Our summer Artistic Swimming Lessons present a well-balanced combination of the key components of artistic swimming: flexibility, core strength, basic swimming, and artistic swimming beginner skills.  Our artistic swimming lessons are specifically designed for boys and girls ages 6-12 who are interested in trying, learning, and/or pursuing artistic swimming.  Small class sizes create an opportunity for personalized feedback and a sense of connection with the instructor and classmates. These lessons are offered in continual two-week sessions throughout the summer.
