SWIM LESSONS AT CHRISTUS HWC
As humans, we’re not born with the innate ability to swim. We must be taught. By learning to swim we gain safety, health, pleasure and the unique opportunity to rescue others. It is our whole-hearted mission at HWC Aquatics to teach the importance of this basic, and necessary human skill.
The CHRISTUS HWC (Health and Wellness Center) provides you with a certified Red Cross Water Safety Instructor to help you or your loved one begin to swim or to become a safer and stronger swimmer. Skills are covered in a logical progression for personal aquatic development. Beginner to Advanced swimmers benefit from one-on-one instruction. Personal instruction will inspire you to achieve all of your aquatic goals, for both safety and fun!
Help your child gain confidence in the water. We offer a wide range of swimming options through structured classes divided by age and skill level. All classes are taught by certified instructors. Swim lessons are eight, 45-minute classes, Monday - Thursday for two weeks. Classes are kept at a minimum for optimum instruction.
