We are a family-run swim business located in Boise, Idaho that has been serving families from all over the Treasure Valley for more than 15 years. We are passionate about educating children and adults of all ages about water safety, basic swimming skills, and stroke development in a safe, positive, encouraging, and FUN environment. We teach small classes in a warm, heated pool with excellent, motivated teachers who work very hard to ensure that children learn how to really SWIM!

Q: Can I share the time with a friend instead of only within my family?

A: Yes, but you need to arrive in ONE vehicle.  At the very most, two vehicles could be allowed if it’s not possible to fit into one. Additionally, for Semi-Private lessons, no more than 2 children may share a time slot and they must be the same level (See the description of levels below).

Q: Can I sign one child up for 30 minutes of a semi-private lesson instead of 15?

A: You can, but for younger children, ages 3 - 6, we highly discourage doing more than 15 minutes of a 1-on-1 private lesson. Children's attention spans are short.  We can get soooooo much done in 15 minutes, and a 30-minute lesson would turn into a lot of play time and not a lot of additional instruction.  It would be MUCH more effective to sign up for 2 weeks of 15-minute lessons than to sign up for 1 week of 30-minute lessons. Older children or more advanced swimmers may find a 30 minute lesson beneficial. 

Q: What if my kids are really different ages?  Can they still swim together if they are the same level?

A: Yes!  No worries if your kids are 10 and 3 years old and both beginners.  Grouping by ability is much more important than age and we will vary our teaching technique to meet each child in an age-appropriate way.  In a family group lesson, you are even welcome, as an adult, to hop in and take lessons too!


Q: What if my family doesn’t fit into any of the scenarios above?

A: Please email us at cathyslilfish@gmail.com prior to registration day and Cathy or Cindy will reach out to you to figure out the best solution.


Q: Can I sign up for more than 1 week or more than 1 two-week session?

A:  A: Absolutely!
