Looking for swim lessons? Check out our sister facility, Powell Wellness Center in Culpeper! Lessons in the indoor aquatic arena are open to the public. 

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends swim lessons for children as a “layer of protection” to prevent drowning. In addition to serving as a key component of water safety, swim lessons can introduce children to a fun physical activity that they may enjoy for years to come.

During PWC’s group lesson program for children, the following classes are typically offered: Parent & Child (ages 6 months – 3 years), Preschool Aquatics (ages 3-5 years), and Learn to Swim (ages 6 – 13 years).

Classes for children support the needs of never-ever swimmers as well as young swimmers progressing in their skills. The learning environment focuses on building skills in a fun way while also focusing on water safety – important knowledge for swimmers in order to help themselves or others in an aquatic emergency.

The summer class schedule is below. Below the schedule you’ll find a guideline to classes and the registration form that can be downloaded and printed.

Please take a look at the following for determining which class may be right for your child and to print a registration form:
