Swim Lessons

The City of Ballwin offers swim lessons both indoor at the Pointe and outdoor at North Pointe (May-August when open). 

Each class session is designed to accommodate 3-5* participants over the course of eight (8) class meetings. However, swim lesson classes will never be cancelled due to low enrollment. Classes with one (1) or two (2) participants enrolled will have an accelerated class schedule because of the ability to progress more quickly through each skill. Classes with two (2) participants will meet for six (6) class periods, and classes with one (1) participant will meet for four (4) class periods. Parent/Child Lessons are designed to accommodate three to 12 participants, with the same schedule adjustments for classes with one (1) or two (2) participants enrolled.

*Seahorses and Adult Group Lessons are designed to accommodate 3-12 participants, with the same schedule adjustments for classes with 1 or 2 participants enrolled.
