Flying Fish Swim School

Young swimmers at the side of the pool

Note: We are now on a much reduced scheduled due to Covid-19 and are only able to offer the following:

We’re offering private and semi-private sessions for two categories of swimmers:

  • those who are self-sufficient and can swim safely without an in-water instructor; and
  • “Penguins,” which refers to advanced beginners who can swim at least 10 yards independently and float on their backs. Penguins will have an in-water instructor.

For these swimmers, 30-minute sessions are available during these times:

  • Saturday and Sunday mornings at 8:30, 9:15, 10, 10:45, and 11:30 am
  • Saturday afternoons at 12:15 and 12:45 pm
  • Sunday afternoons at 12:15 pm

All of these sessions are held in our 20-yard small pool.
