The Crawfish Swim School offers swimming lessons 7 days per week, year round, in a one class per week format. Swimmers who would like to do additional classes per week can do so by signing up for another class day for the duration of the session or by asking about our drop-in lessons.
Water Babies is our free class for babies 2-5 months old and their parent(s) to become familiar with aquatic breath control, buoyancy and movement. Parents learn tips on how to develop comfort and confidence handling their child in the water.
Water Tykes is our class for children 6-28 months old and their parent(s). Swimmers are introduced to basic swimming skills including water orientation, breath control, gentle submersion, floating and kicking, and independent roling. Parents learn verbiage and spotting techniques to facilitate their child’s learning.
Small group classes are offered for children ages 2-12 years old. Group classes are split by age and skill level, so no matter what time of the year your swimmer begins their lessons they will join a group on their same level.
Private classes are offered for children and adults (minimum of 18 months old for private and 2 years old for semi-private).
To enroll in Semi-private lessons, swimmers must be of similar age and skill level. Parents are responsible for finding partner swimmers for semi-private lessons. Crawfish Swim School does not facilitate finding partner swimmers for semi-private lessons. Register the first swimmer and put a note in the comments you would like a semi-private and the additional swimmer. We will contact you to complete registration.
Drop in lessons are offered to current members who may want or need an additional day between their lessons. Ideal for fearful swimmers or those just looking to advance their skills without committing to an additional lesson day for the duration of the session. Ask your front desk or call us about drop-in lessons if you are a current member.
All Crawfish Swim School registration is done through our website for new members or Parent Portal for current/previous members. Our new App allows for registration through our website or Parent Portal all in one place!

Group Classes are session based enrollments. We offer Fall, Spring & Summer Sessions. When registering for group classes swimmers are committed to the full session. There will be no withdrawal option for group class swimmers before the published session end date. Prorates are available if enrolling after a Session start date.
Private, Semi-Private and Water Tykes classes are monthly enrollments. Swimmers are considered enrolled and billable unless a withdrawal form is submitted by the 15th of the month you would like to withdraw (ex: Withdrawal form submitted by June 15 to not continue into July; swimmers last class would be the last week of June). If no withdrawal form is submitted swimmers will continue to be enrolled from month to month until the published session end date.
We do not offer trial lessons. Young children thrive in environments where they have built trust with their instructors and are routinely practicing skills through progressive learning. We do not believe one or two trial lessons are fair to swimmers without these benefits.
We do not evaluate swimmers for placement into group levels before their first lesson. Please use our Level Finder to find the best fit for your swimmer. We will evaluate swimmers during their first lesson to ensure they are in the correct skill level. We will let you know after their first lesson if they are not in the correct skill level and assist you in finding a new class.
Group class enrollment is session-based. Group class swimmers are committed to the full session upon registration, therefore there is no withdrawal prior to the published session end date.
Session Registration Fee $15 per swimmer ($45 maximum per family) Billed at the start of every session at the time of registration.
All accounts are billed on the 1st of each month. If the 1st falls on a holiday or weekend accounts will be billed on the next available business day.
Accounts are billed on the 1st of each month for all classes available to your swimmer that month.
Your monthly tuition total accounts for all weekdays each month (ex: There are 5 Mondays in June; Monday group classes will be billed $117.50).
We encourage parents to choose class times they will be able to consistently attend throughout the entire session or months they plan to participate in swimming lessons. Consistency is key to swimmers learning and maintaining their hard earned skills. We do understand that our swimmers will get sick or have unavoidable conflicts with their swimming classes therefore, we do offer makeup classes.
Makeup classes are a courtesy and subject to availability. They are not guaranteed for any or all missed classes.
Makeup classes are scheduled into existing class openings or absences.
All children who are 3 and under, even if they are potty-trained, or older children who are not fully potty trained must wear ONE REUSABLE swim diaper.
No, please check fit is secure around waist and leg holes by inserting two fingers to ensure elastic is tight enough to hold any accidents and loose enough to not cause discomfort.
DISPOSABLE DIAPERS ARE NOT ALLOWED. This includes Huggies Little Swimmers, Pampers Splashers, etc. Any diaper that is worn and thrown away after use is considered disposable and is not allowed in the Crawfish Swim School pool.
Arrive 10 minutes prior to your class. Check in at the front desk and let us know it’s your first lesson!
Your swimmer’s instructor will call them to line up by the pool enter door. Their instructor will lead their class through the rinse off showers on the pool deck before sitting down to start class.
Yes! Please find a spot in the viewing area where you are comfortable for the duration of your swimmer’s class.
If your child is distracted by you in the viewing area the staff may direct you to additional seating where you will be more out of view so they can focus their attention on their instructor and all can remain on task.
Your swimmer’s instructor will bring them into the viewing area at the end of their lesson and give you a quick summary of how their lessons went, what they are working on and what to look forward to next week.
Yes, there are changing rooms and bathrooms to change your swimmer.
It varies from child to child so we do not quote a specific number of lessons or sessions it will take any swimmer to learn to swim. Some swimmers come to the water with bad past experiences afraid to enter the water all where others will come in eager to jump right in without hesitation. Some will easily pick up skills and others will struggle with the coordination required to put everything together. Consistency is key to your swimmer learning and continuing their progress whether they are fearful or fearless.
