Evening Lessons

We offer evening swimming lesson sessions: Monday & Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30pm, three weeks. Priority will be given to children who cannot attend weekly morning sessions. (Where the number of children is not sufficient, a stoke improvement course will be scheduled for interested families.)

The instructors will evaluate newly registered children between June 3 and June 24. Space is limited, registration will be on a first come, first serve basis. Everything will be done to try and accomodate your scheduling needs and instructor preferences. However, due to the large number of registrations, no guarantees can be made in this respect.
