Group Swim Lessons

SCC Swim Lessons are provided by experienced, Red Cross certified Lifeguards, and are supervised by Head Swim Coach, Charlie Genoar. Classes will be divided by age and skill level, with the ratio of one instructor to three-five students. Lessons start with the goal of teaching the kids comfort in the pool, as well as safe behavior around the pool deck. SCC Instructors set goals for students to achieve in order to advance to the next skill level. Upon learning freestyle and advancing through skill level 4, the student is then ready for SCC’s Pre-Swim Team. There are 10 sessions per summer. Each session is 1 week long, Monday -Thursday, for 40 minutes.
