Meridian Swimming Pool

Over 11,000 students taught in the past three summers!

Swimming is a vital and life saving skill that every child should have. Our curriculum teaches important water safety skills while children have blast in class. As they move to upper levels, they learn how to swim with strong technique. We recommend signing up for multiple sessions each summer and to continue with our program until at least level seven is reached. Students will receive Sea Swimmer Certificates and goodies at the conclusion of each two week session. 

We reserve the right to request birth certificates for 3 year olds to verify their age.

Our insurance does not allow 2 year old children in the program.


We offer the 8-Day Guarantee to ensure your satisfaction. 

Days eligible for closure: 

Reserved swim meets, inclement weather, community events and facility maintenance.

  We are unable to accept any enrollment for children under 3 years old.

 Children must be 3 by the first day of the session.

Also, please note that parents are responsible to supervising their children during lessons.

We ask that no child is left here unattended.
