Swim lessons

The following classes will be offered in PWC’s indoor warm water pool: Parent & Child (ages 6 months – 3 years), Preschool Aquatics (ages 3-5 years), and Learn to Swim (ages 6 – 13 years). Classes for children support the needs of never-ever swimmers as well as young swimmers progressing in their skills. Our learning environment focuses on learning skills in a fun way while also focusing on water safety – important knowledge for swimmers in order to help themselves or others in an aquatic emergency.
