SWIM LESSONS - see you in 2024!


Lessons start at 8 am and run every 30 minutes ending at 10:30am. RFTC offers three different lesson options available at each of the time slots and they are as follows:

  1. Group lessons are geared towards swimmers between the ages of 3 - 10+. Strokes are introduced in age appropriate lessons building on what each swimmer already may or may not know. The class has a 1:4 teacher student ratio. The teacher is able to individualize the lesson to accommodate the swimmer’s needs. Students are grouped based on age to help foster social emotional growth with their peers. These classes are 30 mins. Non-members $95 per swimmer, members $75 per swimmer. 
  2. Endurance class is for the more advanced swimmers in need of some stroke development while increasing their swimming endurance. During the 30 minute class, students will be swimming back and forth (sets) in each of the 4 strokes. This class is our highest level swim class for those that are ready to increase their stamina. These classes are 30 minutes. Non-members $95 per swimmer, members $75 per swimmer. 
  3. Water orientation lessons are for children under the age of 3 who have had limited experience with lessons. This is a 15 minute lesson and will have a 1:1 instructor student ratio. The swimmer will be introduced to swimming skills and water safety. Non-members $55 per swimmer, members $45 per swimmer.
