The MHA Learn-To-Swim Program offers many advantages for your children!

Small class sizes – children learn faster!

Two lessons sets per evening ensure quality instruction for your child, by maintaining developmentally-appropriate class sizes. This allows kids to focus on learning to swim!

Focused instruction – safety and skills!

We have defined key swimming and safety skills for each level, as we all want our children to be safe in and out of the water! Instructors will build on what your child has learned in their previous levels to be both successful and safe swimmers.

Fun for the kids - flexibility for you!

We all learn best when we are having fun, so expect to see your child playing games that support and enhance the skills they are learning. Expect to see you child be successful – by having fun!

Each site offers 30-minute lessons (times listed, above - pool locations, listed below). Registration and check-in begins 15 minutes prior to the start of each lesson.

We welcome your questions and comments, and we encourage you to speak with your site’s Head Instructor. You may also contact the MHA Lesson Coordinator, Jody Rash, at 541-580-6512 (cell), or 503-665-4494 (Reynolds Swim Center).
