How do you take your water? Do you prefer early morning laps with just you and your thoughts, or do you prefer to do battle with rogue toddlers armed with the latest in water gun technology? Our pools are made to handle every type of aquatic pursuit, from leisurely cannonballs to intense team competition.
With year round programs that include swim lessons, lap swimming, swim team, master’s swimming, AquaFit classes and, of course, just general play time, the LRRC is home to all of your aquatic pursuits. So, come on in! The water’s fine.
Group Swim Lessons
Our Swim Academy classes are offered year round for children ages 4 months to 12 years and levels are based on your child’s age and ability. Swimmers progress until they have reached their goals or have the ability to join the swim team. Group lessons are 30 minutes. During the school year we offer four week sessions that meet twice a week either on Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays. During the summer, groups meet Monday through Thursday for two weeks. For a full description of our class and private/semi-private options, please see the registration form. To check on availability, contact the club at 225-5711.
Private and semi-private lessons are available for children of any age.

Private lessons are great for fine tuning technique, discovering lap swimming, preparing for a triathlon or just learning to swim. Our Dolphin Swim Team coaches are here to help. They can give individual stroke technique lessons, write a workout seasonal plan to reach your goals, or coach you through a training session.
