Crestview offers complimentary swimming lessons for children from age 2 and up. Swim lessons run will 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. from June 25th until July 27th. Specific class times will be determined based on enrollment. Evaluations must be done prior to the beginning of the lessons for placement into the proper group (see goals below) and to assure your swimmer of a spot. Our objective is to maximize the benefit of lessons by trying to keep classes smaller. Evaluations will take place from 11am – 1pm on Saturday, June 8th and 15th. Goals for each swim lesson group:
