Swim Lessons

Check back for information regarding the 2023 season!

We are partnering with the British Swim School to provide group swim lessons for 2022!  British Swim School was founded on the belief that every child should learn water safety and survival skills. For almost 40 years, they have been dedicated to their mission: “survival of the littlest”. Their unique methodologies, programs, and techniques are proven to save lives and teach people of all ages how to swim.  Registration will open soon!

Their highly trained, experienced, and friendly swim instructors teach swimming lessons that focus on safety, fun and developing skill during every single class. Every child is different, and the program is purposely designed to help any student no matter the age or ability.

Students learn better in small groups: that is why the lessons are limited to 4 students. Students get the benefit of watching each other and instructors focus on each student’s individual needs.

 Red - Advanced Water Safety & Beginner swimming

The Red level reinforces and builds on the safety skills from the Yellow level by introducing propulsion skills for water survival. Children learn beginner freestyle and backstroke to build confidence and prepare for our stroke development level.

Blue - Stroke Skills

Swimmers will learn correct arm, leg, and breathing techniques for freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke, and be introduced to butterfly. Students are constantly moving, swimming at the same time as each other, to gain repetitions and improve their endurance.

Weather Cancellations & Makeups

Timbers of Eureka staff will determine whether the pool must be closed due to weather or other circumstances. A makeup lesson will be offered if a lesson is cancelled due to a pool closure. Makeups will not be offered for student absences.
