Swimming Lessons

The goal of our swim lessons is to teach participants to be safe when they are in, on, and around the water. Children are encouraged to try new skills, but they are never forced to complete tasks they are not ready to do. We believe that with patience, positive encouragement and frequent repetition of skills, your child will have a happy and successful swimming experience.

Please note: We can only offer swim lessons to members of pools or communities that are managed by Cincinnati Pool Management. The minimum age to participate is 3.
