We make learning to swim a lifetime of enjoyment!
One of the most rewarding parts of having a pool is watching a child learn to swim. As an optional service, we provide your children with swimming lessons. Our group classes contain no more than six students to ensure that all receive the attention they need to become proficient swimmers. We also offer private and semi-private lessons.
Please note that under certain circumstances, lessons may not be offered at your facility. We only teach swim lessons to members at pools or communities that are managed by Indianapolis Pool Management. We can only offer lessons to members at the pool of which they are a member.
Our swim instructors will help your child gain self-confidence and satisfaction from learning to swim.
Our swim instructors provide:
- Class organization (lesson plans, class registration, certificates)
- Swimming lesson instruction
- Communication with parents
At Indianapolis Pool Management, children are rewarded with praise for a job well done. They are never forced to perform a skill. We believe that with patience, positive encouragement and frequent repetition of skills, your child will have a happy, safe and successful swimming experience.
Class sizes are a maximum of 6 students and a minimum of 3 students per instructor.
Classes are held Monday - Thursday, for 30 minutes, for a two-week session.
