Each session of four lessons is $120 for RCH members and $130 for nonmembers. Parents will bring children (dressed in swim wear, sunscreen applied) into the pool area at lesson time. After 5 minutes, parents will leave or wait in the clubhouse and return for pick-up at the end of the 50-minute lesson. Parents/guests will be invited to stay and view the last 15 minutes on the final day. Participants must be potty trained. Please return a completed registration form, along with payment, to The Racquet Club office.

Each child progresses at his/her own pace. We will start with bubbles/bobs, then progress to proper techniques for floating, kicking, freestyle, and backstroke--all while having FUN at the pool. In addition, a safety topic (example: feet-first entry or how to call for help) will be covered at each lesson.

Sessions must have a minimum of three participants. Sessions that are at maximum capacity will be covered by the Instructor and an assistant. Private lessons are available upon request.
