Swim Lessons

Our lessons focus on safety and stroke development for all ages, and prepare the participants for competitive swimming after completion of all levels. Our lesson plan is designed to be fun for each participant while challenging them to become exceptional swimmers.

Online registration is available at holt.revtak.net and will be closed two business days before the class begins. There are no late additions to the class. The ages assigned to each class are a guideline, skill level will be a better gage of class assignments.
