Learn to Swim
West End Aquatics – Learn to Swim
We aim to develop life‐long swimmers. Strong swimming leads to a love of water, lifetime fitness opportunities, and most importantly a healthy respect for water safety.
Classes are limited to four (4) swimmers ages 4‐15 years old. Sessions that do not meet a minimum of three (3) enrolled swimmers may be cancelled.
There are no makeup classes. Because we tend to book every class, we cannot substitute different days or times for individual swimmers.
