Swimming

Facilities
Lakeshore Sport & Fitness maintains two swimming pools.

  • Our first floor lap pool, featuring 9 lanes, offers members the opportunity to swim laps and to train. Perfect for the serious swimmer or the beginner looking to add laps to their work out, this pool offers open swim at all times that the club is open. There is no lifeguard on duty.
  • Our fourth floor Family Pool is a bit smaller and kept at a warmer temperature. This pool houses group lessons, private lessons, birthday parties, and open family swim. There is a lifeguard staffed during busier hours, holidays, and high-volume days. Our full length windows also open out to allow in fresh air and sunshine during the summer months.

Youth Swimming Classes

Swimming

Swimming builds confidence, self-esteem, and skills that will last your child a lifetime. Our comprehensive group lesson program is geared toward children 9 months to 11 years old. Classes are typically held in ten week sessions and enrollment opens three weeks prior to the start of a session. LSF maintains a 1:4 ratio of instructors to swimmers and max at 8 swimmers in group classes, with the exception of our Preschool 1 and 2 classes having a 1:3 ratio and a max of 6 swimmers. Parents are only required to be in the water during a lesson when the child is enrolled in one of our Parent & Child classes.
