Tiger Swim Lessons & Stroke Development

From water exploration to stroke technique for competitive swimming, we have a place for everyone. We offer a unique experience as our instructors are current members of the DePauw men’s and women’s swimming teams each with several years of competitive swimming background and certified lifeguards each with experience teaching swim lessons. We are offering lessons for ages four (4) and up! All lessons are semi-private (1-2 students per instructor).
