West University Place partners with multiple top swimming coaching and training companies in our area. From infants to teens, from beginner to experienced, if you want to learn to swim, or just improve your skill and technique, we offer a program right for you.
Learn about our children's swimming programs below.
Ages:1 year and older
Children learn water safety, holding their breath, basic to advanced swimming skills, and endurance in the water.
It's never too early for your child to learn to swim. Learning to swim as an infant can often be easier than learning when older. Infant Aquatic Swim is a proven method that equips children ages 6 months to 6 years with the survival swimming skills required to safely enjoy the water.
This is a class geared for intermediate swimmers ages 8 and older, who can swim the pool length comfortably with a reasonable crawl stroke or freestyle and would like to improve their swimming skills and fitness.
Are you 15 or older and looking for a great summer job, after-school activity or challenging career in aquatics? Lifeguarding puts you in an exciting position, working as part of a team to help people safely enjoy the water. Lifeguarding will also help you develop skills and experiences that will be valued by colleges and future employers.

Prerequisite testing is NOT optional and must be completed before the participant can receive the link for the online portion of the class. This class has online and in-class pool components. All videos and interactive activities online must be completed between the prerequisite swim test on the first day and the in-class dates.
