5-Week Course / Group Class Policies

I’ve had nothing but an amazing experience in my adult Square One classes. I came into my classes with a massive fear of water, and was unable to do even the simplest of things, such as put my head underwater or float. Within three months, I’ve learned to tread water, swim the length of the pool, and feel much more confident in my ability to float or resort to techniques to keep myself safe in the water. As an adult I was nervous to register for classes and unsure of what to expect, but Coach Beth has been incredibly patient and resourceful with her approach to making me feel comfortable in the water. I would endlessly recommend the classes, as they gave me the little boost forward I needed to feel comfortable in the water and to push me to want to do swimming regularly.
