Group Swim Lessons
Why our curriculum works!
The Byron Park District's swim lesson curriculum combines expertise from the American Red Cross, Swim Lesson University, World Aquatic Babies & Children Network and USA Swimming Agencies. This curriculum has a greater focus on earlier progression of the front crawl stroke utilizing in-line body positioning (face in water) with a delayed focus on the backstroke. Plus, all instructors complete a comprehensive child-centered training program, in which they learn the progressions of each stroke and interactive teaching techniques!

Fee is $22/$27.50 for a 30 minute lesson or $27.50/$33 for a 45 minute lesson. Additional siblings enrolled in the same private lesson will receive half off the regular price.
