Swimming Lessons

The 92-degree warm water, the qualified instruction, and the welcoming atmosphere of our facility allow all ages of swimmers to relax and learn at an accelerated rate. Lessons include water safety instruction.

We offer private, semi-private, and parent/child classes to swimmers from 6 months and older, including adults.

Lessons are 30 minutes in length with 4-week sessions throughout the year. We recommend two lessons a week (Mon/Weds or Tues/Thurs), however fewer or more can be scheduled.

Lessons are scheduled to start between 3:00-5:00PM Monday through Thursday.

Please call (541) 686-9290 to stop in to register.
We're ready to find the perfect time, day, and instructor for you!
