Youth Swim Level Guide

Our youth swim program is divided into 4 different skill levels. Classes may also be broken up by age, but the skills emphasized in each level remain the same across age groups. If you are unsure as to which level your child fits into, please give us a call at (774) 214-3021 or email

We offer classes in both weekly sessions and weekend sessions. For a full list of class times for all levels following the links below.
