Summer Swim Lessons

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.
