Blue Dolphins Aquatics is offering group swim lessons for residents of Briar Chapel this summer!

  • Lessons are open to students of all ages and abilities, including children under 3 and adults.
  • The class meets Mon-Thu, with Friday as a make-up day in the event one of the regular scheduled days was cancelled. 
  • Cancellations are only allowed if you are cancelling for the entire week and your cancellation request is received at least 15 days in advance of the first scheduled lesson. 
  • If you miss an individual class within the week this will be considered a student absence and no make-up, credit or refund will be given. 
  • If we find on the first day of the week a swimmer is signed up for an incorrect level, BDA will move the swimmer to the proper level should space be available within the current week. If no space is available in the current week, NO CREDIT OR REFUND will be issued. 
  • A $20 non-refundable annual insurance fee applies per student once lessons are scheduled.
  • BDA is on auto-pay via credit card only.  
    All customers must enter credit card information in the BDA Portal before lessons can be scheduled. 
  • Please email  with any questions!

Parent/Child Group Class - $40 per class for the week
  • BDA's parent/child lessons are designed as an introductory aquatic experience for young children as well as a means to equip parents with basic techniques and strategies to prepare children for swimming success.  Older/more advanced students in these classes will also learn the basics of swimming: flotation, going under water, and swimming unassisted.
  • This is not a "survival swim class" but we will teach the steps of the "jump, flip and float" sequence, as well as, "jump, turn, swim, and climb out" sequence. 
  • BDA parent/child lessons are designed for children ages 6-36 months.  A parent or responsible adult is in the water with each child.
