Making swimming accessible to the LES community

Make a splash with Swim N Kids!
Swim N’ Kids is an instructional swimming program for kids ages 4-11. Swim lessons are a great way to teach children how to be safe and have fun in and around the water, while providing lifelong skills that can help them stay active and healthy. Through instructional classes, children will learn and practice basic swimming skills, including breathing, kicking and floating. All swim classes are held in our competition-sized swimming pool, with a certified swim instructor.
