Glider Swim Class for Kids in Portland, ME

Beginner Swim Class for 4 to 12 year olds that join us from Portland, South Portland, Scarborough, and Surrounding Areas

Our Glider swim class is designed for children between the ages of 4 and 12 and includes three different levels. Our state-of-the-art facility is located in Portland, ME, and we welcome children and families from all around the surrounding areas to join our Goldfish Swim School family!

Swim Lessons for 3 Different Levels from Beginner (No Experience) to Intermediate Students

Whether your child has no experience or is capable of swimming solo without assistance, we offer swim lessons that will fit their needs and comfort level.

Each Glider kids swim class is 30 minutes long and has a four-child limit, so your little swimmer will get ample attention while in the water. Beginner swim lessons help swimmers gain confidence and water safety skills. Swimmers will learn to swim by acquiring foundational skills like putting their face in the water, submerging their body, holding their breath, rolling over, back floating, and more. As they near the intermediate level, they will begin to work on their freestyle/front crawl over increasing distances. By building skills through games, rewards, and a fun environment, every student can enjoy the learning experience and make memories along the way.

Whether you live locally in Portland or are joining us from a surrounding area like South Portland or Scarborough, we look forward to welcoming your swim student into our Glider program at Goldfish Swim School!
