Swim lessons for any age... any level
The Marsh will close effective Friday, November 20 at 7:00 p.m. for the next four weeks as Minnesota takes a pause. Therefore, our current session of children’s swim lessons will also be paused. We will be in touch with you once the restrictions are lifted and we are able to resume and reschedule the remaining dates of the current session.
If you have any questions during the closure, please contact Evan Strewler at email@example.com.
The Marsh offers a unique environment for children and adults who are learning how to swim – a calm, comfortable atmosphere, warm water pools, highly experienced instructors and individualized attention. We offer group and individual lessons for students age 3 and up. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Children's Swimming Lessons
Begin the week of November 2!
Children’s group lessons are for ages 3 and up. Our small group classes are 30 minutes and limited to 3 – 4 children. One or two groups of students and teachers are in the pool at a time, making for more focused learning and a larger space to practice. Your child’s confidence will increase as they learn and improve their swimming and water safety skills with our experienced instructors.
This program is for Parents/Grandparents and their child 6 months to 4 years old. Classes focus on water adjustment activities and development of basic swimming skills through games, songs and fun water activities. All classes include basic water safety activities. This is a wonderful opportunity to interact closely with your child and have a positive water experience. Classes are held in our 94-degree Therapy Pool (Class sizes are a 1:7 ratio).
Please check back for further updates on when we will be offering our next session of AquaBabies and AquaTots. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Private and Semi-Private Swimming Lessons for Children
As an alternative or supplement to our group lessons, we are able to accommodate your child/ children with 30-45 minute lessons, individualized for their needs. Contact Diane Pattridge at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and scheduling for private and semi-private lessons.
Adult Swimming Lessons
Private swim lessons are offered for adults of all levels. For the very beginner, we have our wonderful 95-degree Therapy Pool for easier adjustment to the water. As you become more comfortable we graduate to our 84-degree lap pool. In addition, we often offer Swim Clinics on topics such as Stroke Refinement throughout the year. Contact Diane Pattridge at email@example.com for more information and scheduling for private and semi-private lessons.
