Youth Swim Classes


Living in West Michigan, we have many opportunities to participate in water activities. The SLCFAC wants to make sure that everyone is comfortable with their swimming experience by providing group lessons for ages 6 months on up. Group lessons are available for members and non-members. One certified instructor per 5 participants in each class; except for Water Babies – parents are in the water for the class.

At the Fitness and Aquatic Center, we run swim classes year round.
