Not only is swimming a great workout and an excellent way to develop motor skills and confidence – it’s also fun! LSF is the perfect place for your kids to start dipping their toes in the water, develop lifelong skills and learn the basics so they are safe in and around the water. The club maintains two swimming pools:

Our indoor large multi-lane pool, perfect for training and swimming laps.

Our 3rd floor rooftop pool for play and relaxation

Lakeshore offers group lessons as well as private lessons to help your children learn to swim and perfect their strokes. 

Group lessons are available on Saturdays, and we will arrange private groups for 3 or more at your convenience!

Parent & Child – Designed for our youngest swimmers (9-36 months) and an adult, this class offers an opportunity to create a stronger sense of security between you, your child and the water through songs and interactive coaching. Our instructors create a fun and comfortable environment which allows your child to quickly become acclimated to the water. 

Learn to Swim – An entry-level class that is intended to provide swimmers with simple water familiarity and basic body control in the water, such as back and front floats, breathing and feeling comfortable going under-water. Your swimmer will also receive an introduction to stroke kicking for both the Backstroke and Freestyle. This class serves as a basis for all future development in the water.

Level 1 – In this first of three levels of swim classes, your swimmer will master putting his or her head under-water, strengthen basic Backstroke & Freestyle kicking and be introduced to arm techniques, improve streamline position and body control, and jump into the water independently.
