Ultra Youth Swim 1Learning to swim can be intimidating when you are older and just starting out. This program is designed to meet the needs of youth (9-16 years) that have little to no swim training. Instead of trying to fit into the traditional Learn to Swim Levels with children half their age, youth can learn to swim in a group lesson with their peers. This is an introductory level teaching the basics of getting wet, basic floating positions, and introduction to front and back swims. We are committed to creating a comfortable swim environment for people learning to swim at any age. Knowing how to swim can save your life! Get in the swim!
