Swim lessons ONCE per week:

This is great for swimmers who are just getting their feet wet (pun intended!) with Goldfish’s Golden Experience. Weekly lessons are key in taking the proper steps toward ensuring your child’s increased safety, comfort and awareness in and around water.

Swim lessons TWICE per week:

This option is great to advance your child’s swimming skills twice as fast! Not only will they advance quicker, but it’s a great cardiovascular exercise for your child!

Casual "Drop-In" lessons:

At Goldfish, we offer casual lessons for that family who wants to “drop in” for that extra class each week. Swimming more than once per week allows your child to improve their skills at a faster pace. Just call us and we can look for a time slot that works for you!
