    Due to pool space, we DO NOT teach lessons on Saturday or Sunday afternoons at Brightleaf.
  • 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 Lessons
  • Blue Dolphins Aquatics' 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.
  • BDA parent/child lessons are designed for children ages 6-36 months.  A parent or responsible adult is in the water with each child.
  • Individual parent/child lessons follow the same policies as our private, semi-private and family lessons. 
  • A 30-minute parent/child lesson costs $10 per student.

You must register with BDA before enrolling!  Please follow the instructions below.
