The Wheaton Swim Club provides quality group swimming lessons to the community in June and July. Wheaton Lessons are instructed by professional adult instructors, and assisted by high school and college aged swimmers, many of whom are members of the Wheaton Swim Club National Team. We do not have a minimum age requirement but do require all participants to be potty trained. Please read below for full information about our group lessons, and contact us with any questions you may have.
Our summer children's swimming lessons are taught at the Wheaton College Student Recration Center. The pool is indoors so you don't need to worry about the weather! Click for Maps & Directions.
