Swimming Lessons

swimming lessons

Abbi just finished her two weeks of swimming lessons at Layton Surf and Swim. She had a lot of fun and enjoyed being able to swim every day for two weeks. She is getting quite brave and loves to jump in the pool and put her head under water. As a parent and a responsible blogger I feel like I need to say something about the quality of the swimming lessons at Surf and Swim. Perhaps in the least it will be a reminder to me for next summer. While the price is right ($35 for eight 45 minute lessons over two weeks), it is a very good example of you get what you pay for. The class sizes are large, the instructors are young, under-trained and probably under-paid, and the amount of actual instruction paled in comparison to the time they spent sitting on the edge of the pool or playing ‘Marco Polo’. So if you are looking for a way to entertain kids for 45 minutes while you sit in the shade with a good book then I recommend Surf and Swim as a great outlet for your kids during the summer. But, if you want real quality swimming instruction – which I think Abbi is now ready for – I suggest looking elsewhere. If anyone knows of any great places here is Davis County let me know.

  1. Sorry, can’t recommend anyone. 😉

    I couldn’t post a comment on the bike riding post for some reason, so I am posting my comment for it on this one.

    That looks like such a fun family activity. I am impressed that Caleb allowed his little bro to sleep on his lap like that. Such cute brothers.
