    Thursday: 5:00pm class - 0 spots remaining, 5:30pm class - 0 spots remaining. 

    This level is designed for students who have little or no experience with water. This level will teach skills to help students become comfortable in the aquatic environment while also forming basic swimming and floating skills to be able to swim independently.

    Thursday: 5:00pm class - 2 spots remaining, 5:30pm class - 1 spot remaining. 

    At this level, students will begin to form the essentials for the freestyle, backstroke, and side strokes. Rotary breathing is introduced at this level as well as exploration of deeper water. Treading water and diving are introduced at this level as well. Lastly, the foundation of aquatic endurance is laid by independently practicing the stroke skills learned for longer distances than at the beginner's level.

    This level is designed for students who have had prior experience with swimming lessons but are not quite ready to move on to a swim team. At this level, participants will build upon their knowledge from the intermediate level by being introduced to the butterfly and breaststroke, as well as flip turns and race dives from the block.

  • Private Lessons

    Private lessons are a great way to enhance your swimming skills for anyone over the age of 3. This lesson will allow you to focus on what you need to learn, individually. You will have access to a swim instructor that will tailor the class to your needs so that you get the most out of each lesson. Private lessons are scheduled by the Aquatics Director, Jacob Grant. He can be reached at (215) 453-6944 ext. 114069 or jgrant@pennridge.org.

    Private Lessons are $40/half hour lesson.

     

    Semi-Private Lessons

    Semi-Private Lessons are a great option if you have 2-3 people that want to learn to swim together and are at about the same level of ability. We do not arrange groups for you. These lessons are tailored to individual needs and can be a great way to get the individual attention you or your children may need that a group lesson can't provide. Semi-Private lessons are scheduled by the Aquatics Director, Jacob Grant. He can be reached at (215) 453-6944 ext. 114069 or jgrant@pennridge.org.

    Semi-Private Lessons are $25/half hour lesson per person.
