FHCC offers a wonderful “Learn to Swim Program” for all ages, based on
the American Red Cross Curriculum. We emphasize on the adaptation to a
new environment, and making the “non-swimmer” to “swimmer” transition a
comfortable and enjoyable one. All of our lessons are taught by gentle,
highly qualified instructors in our heated 50 meter pool. We have a
variety of group, private, and semi-private lessons available for
all ages and abilities. Upon request, adult and extended level lessons
are also available.
