Programs for Kids of All Ages
The Grayslake Aquatic Center offers a unique swim lesson program designed to teach children of all ages and abilities to swim. The swim lesson program is designed to progress from fundamental water skills to beginning and advanced swimming strokes. Each class / level focuses on the introduction, development, and mastery of a particular skill set to prepare children for the next class / level. A variety of instruction options (group, small group, individual) allows parents to choose the best learning environment for their child.

Swim Lesson Programs

Private & Semi-Private Lessons
Private and Semi-Private lessons provide an opportunity for small group and individualized instruction. The low child to instructor ratio allows for focused development of each child's swimming skills. Late morning (semi-private) and evening (semi-private, private) lessons are perfect for families whose parents work or children attend summer camps or classes.

Adult Lessons
Private swim lessons are available for adults who are interested in learning how to swim.  Private lessons offer one-on-one instruction to help adults develop confidence in strokes and increase endurance.
