Group Swim Lessons are BACK!

Aspen Hill Club aquatics swim V3

The design of our swim program is based on the streamlined position, student focus, and fun. We place individuals according to their skill level and not by age group. In the first session, all students are evaluated and placed in a smaller group with those with similar proficiency. See the backside of the Group Lesson form for more information.

Our Group Swim Lesson program is back with limited classes. Each class must have a minimum of two students and a maximum of 6 students.
