More about Aquatics programs
We offer a variety of swim programs, ranging from learn to swim lessons to recreational swimming to training for swim team competitions.
Swim Lessons (Youth and Adult)
Homestead Aquatic Center
Youth swim lessons are offered year-round for swimmers ages 6 months to 12 years, and include all skill levels. Our lessons emphasize water safety, skill and stroke development. Beginning swimmers are introduced to basic stroke movement and learn how to be more comfortable in the water.
For children who have little or no previous water experience, instructors facilitate lessons that involve water adjustment activities with parent and child. Parents will be taught holding positions while familiarizing the child to body positions in the water.
For adults who need a little tutoring to refine those swimming skills of long ago our private swim lessons are for you.
If you have completed Level 4 swim skills, join us for a fun-filled youth swim team season! No previous swim team experience is required. The team is a great way to meet other youth in the area while exercising. Focus is placed on improving technique, endurance and speed. Swim test on first night to determine practice time, 6:30-7:30 or 7:30 to 8:30.
Ages 18 and older. Enjoy a chance to be social and work out with friends. Improve muscle tone, strength, and flexibility as well as cardiovascular fitness. A total-body non-impact workout that is great for burning calories.
