Swim Lessons

At the Roanoke and Botetourt locations, we endeavor to provide all participants with a positive and enjoyable experience in and around the water. Each course combines skills and instruction in water safety and swimming. We offer both group and private lessons to allow for each person to find lessons that work well for them.

All group lessons run on a four-week set. We maintain a ratio of one instructor per every four students, except for Parent & Child classes which may have up to eight students.

Visit our calendar for swim lessons.

Swim Lesson Class Descriptions

Parent & Child

Children must be 6 months to 3 years

This course provides instruction for both parent and child. These courses provide instruction on support and holding techniques, selecting and using life jackets, water adjustment, changing positions, breath control, water entry and exit, and basic skills for swimming on front and back.

Level 1 – Beginner

Water Exploration | Children are generally 3 to 5 years


The objective of level 1 is to help students feel comfortable in the water and enjoy the water safely. This level touches on elementary aquatic skills, which students build on as they progress through the upper levels.

Level 2 – Advanced Beginner

Primary Skills | Children are generally 3 to 7 years


Students will work on fundamental aquatic skills, including learning to float without support, as well as additional locomotion skills. Students will explore simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions, which provide a strong basis for future strokes.

Level 3 – Advanced Beginner II

Stroke Development | Children are generally 5 to 9 years


Students will learn to swim on their own for short 
distances. Students practice front and back crawl, as well as some elements of butterfly and breast stroke. This class also begins experience with treading water and begins working on rotary breathing (to the side versus picking whole 
head up).

Level 4 – Intermediate

Stroke Improvement | Children are generally 5 to 10 years


The objective of level 4 is to develop confidence in the strokes students have learned so far and improve on other aquatic skills. Students increase their endurance in front and back crawl, as well as building on their skills for butterfly and breaststroke. Elements of sidestroke and elementary backstroke are also brought in at this level.

Level 5 – Intermediate II

Stroke Refinement | Children are generally 5 to 11 years


During this course, students will work on coordinating and refining their strokes. Refinement takes place in all strokes as well as increasing endurance to swim greater distances. Flip turns on front and back are also brought in at this level.

Level 6 – Youth Endurance

Stroke Technique, Skill Proficiency | Children are generally 7 to 14 years


This level allows for students to choose among several options which prepare students to 
participate in more advanced courses or at 
competitive levels of swimming.

Jr. Lifeguarding

This option is targeted towards students who may be interested in competitive swimming or are interested in the use of swimming equipment and developing an individual swimming 
fitness program.

Adult – Beginner

Primary Skills & Stroke Development


Adults who are in need of basic water skills and would like to advance their swimming strokes. This level is customized to meet the goals and needs of individual swimmers. Lessons usually include instruction and practice basic combined skills associated with freestyle and backstroke.

Adult – Technique

Skill Proficiency


Adults wanting to use swimming as a fitness tool or be a competitive swimmer. Students will improve upon previously learned skills, as well as improving their endurance and will practice smooth strokes and techniques.
