Swim lessons are a wonderful and safe way to learn to swim while promoting fun and fitness. We offer several options for all age groups and levels. The calm and quiet atmosphere and high staff-to-client ratio facilitates learning. If you are looking for more than swim lessons, we have personal trainers at RVC who incorporate swim and the pools into their fitness routines.


Please note that FitKids Childcare families are invited to share the pool with our members Monday-Friday from 6:30-8:30pm and Saturday/Sunday from 9-11am and 3-6pm. Thank you for your cooperation.
