DCC Swimming Lessons

At the beginning of each semester, children are evaluated individually by our full-time aquatic director and certified teaching staff. Groups are assigned by age and ability. Classes are limited to 3-6 students per instructor, depending on the age and ability level of the swimmers. Parents receive progress reports at the end of each semester that outline the skills their children have acquired, as well as areas of potential improvement.
