Swim Lessons are available for PWG Members. Non-Members may complete the interest form below and must enroll in a PWG Membership before their first scheduled session. 

Types of Lessons

Adult Beginner Lessons 

Designed for adults with limited to no swimming experience. Lessons will teach the fundamentals of swimming - including floatation, treading water, and basic strokes. 

Stroke Technique/Improvement Lessons

Designed for adults and children (ages 5 and up) who can swim and are seeking to improve their strokes and mechanics. Individuals must be able to swim 25 yards and tread water for one minute, unassisted.

All sessions last approximately 45 minutes, with at least 30 minutes of in-water instruction. Sessions will typically be scheduled within weekend Recreational Lap Swim Hours. Weekday sessions may be available on a case-by-case basis, based upon demand for space during weekday Recreational Lap Swim. 

The initial session will be a basic assessment of the swimmer’s skills and abilities.
