Child Programs

Our children's aquatics programs and private swim lessons are currently unavailable. 

The warm water pools at Galter LifeCenter provide an ideal setting for your child  to learn to swim. Our aquatics programs and services are designed to ensure that your child has a safe and fun experience in the water. Our goal is to create a welcoming environment that encourages children to want to learn water safety, and to enjoy swimming now and in the future.

All of our swim instructors are Water Safety and CPR certified. Our lesson plans have been created with a progressive learning model starting from 6 months old, all the way to a student who is ready for competitive swimming.  

Our aquatics programs have received national recognition from the Medical Fitness Association for our instructor training process.

"I'm in my mid-60's and also have a congenital condition that affects all my joints. Finding equipment I can use and exercises I can do has always been a challenge, mostly because of issues I have with my hands and wrists. I decided to try working with a personal trainer to get some help figuring out what might work for me. I've been working with Sue Talbert for the past three months and the difference it has made can't be overstated. She has spent a great deal of effort carefully finding the things that work for me in a way that I could have never done on my own and it made a difference almost immediately. My flexibility and strength have improved and I honestly feel that it has dramatically changed what I feel like I'm physically capable of. For a person in their 60's, that's an amazing thing. It's been a wonderful mental boost to feel strong and in control of my well-being. Sue does not let me slack off, but is always conscious of what my limitations are. Working with her has been a pleasure and has made an enormous difference in my daily life." - Tisha
