Give your child the swim skills for a lifetime of fun and safety in the water.
Swim Lesson Overview
Waves Swim School at Weymouth Club develops children into strong, skilled, confident swimmers. Here’s what makes our school special:
Highly experienced instructors make lessons fun, informative, and safe.
Toddler and School-Aged classes have a ratio of 1 certified instructor to 4 children, ensuring every swimmer receives close attention.
We believe in continuous goal-setting. Each child receives a pool side evaluation at the end of their lessons to talk about their accomplishments and skills to keep working on. It’s a great way to keep young swimmers motivated and pushing forward.
