Ben Franklin Swim Club will be offering swim lessons with our instructors for members only. If you are not a member, please contact Mark Elliott at mark@benfranklinswimclub.com for contact information for private lessons also offered at our pool. Lessons are usually recommended if your child struggles placing their face in the water and/or is not yet able to swim a lap of the pool without assistance. If you feel that your child is above this level, you may want to consider the Junior Dolphin program. Lesson sessions run weekly Monday-Thursday, and Friday is saved as a make up day in case of rain. Lessons start at 10am and run for 30 minutes with 4/5 kids per teacher. We try to group the kids together at the same swim level instead of by age. Cost is $40 per weekly session.
