Swimming lessons at the WISC are powered by 757Swim, one of our Alliance Partners. 757Swim offers a comprehensive lesson program for anyone aged six months to adults, taught by certified instructors. Swimming lessons are session-based. Class descriptions are below.

The goal of this class is to provide instruction for adults who accompany their children to develop aquatic readiness skills. By empowering parents to teach their kids to develop a high-comfort level in the water, children will gain confidence and learn to enjoy being in the water. This class does not teach children at this age to become accomplished swimmers, but it provides a foundation for future learning.
