Swim Lessons - Group Register View Cart

In this very unusual year, we are pleased that we can offer ONE SESSION of swim lessons.  We know that we cannot meet the needs and schedules of everyone, but are hoping that we can serve 50 children with lessons.  Before going any further, please be sure you can attend on afternoon weekdays the weeks of Aug. 2-13th
All children registering for a lesson must register for a swim test first by scheduling the same with the beach office at 223-6970

Goals of Lessons
