Free Open Swim While Enrolled In Swim Lessons

To encourage our swimmers to practice their skills between lessons, each child who enrolls in our swim lessons will receive a family open swim certificate that will allow FREE unlimited access for their immediate family to open swim for the duration of their swim lesson session. Family open swim certificates will be handed out on the first day of swim lessons and may be redeemed for a Splash Pass at the service desk. One certificate per family. Certificates are non-transferrable.
