REGISTRATION for 2019 Swim Lessons will open in February 2019


OHYA Lionfish Swim School

OVERVIEW:

Oak Hills Youth Athletics Lionfish will offer swimming lessons with a focus on how to be safe in and around the water.  The program is designed for children 3 years old all the way up to age 11.  Our lessons are supervised by lifeguard-certified instructors and most of our instructors have been competitive swimmers.  Swimmers progress through the levels at their own pace, mastering the skills in one level before advancing to the next.  

 

Parent & Child Class is being offered to ages 6 months – 4 years to help introduce the water to the child and get them comfortable through the use of singing, blowing bubbles, etc.  The structure is very non-threatening.  Parents must enter the water with the children.  A max of 10 parents/child will be in the water with 1 instructor.

 

SWIM LESSON DATES:

Swim Lessons will run for 6 consecutive weeks

  • SUMMER - Starting the week of Monday, June 4 and ending the week starting Monday July 9

Your swimmer will have one 30 minute lesson on the day and time you register for during each of these 6 weeks.  There are NO MAKEUP classes if a class is missed.
