Smilefish Swim School

Teaching the kids of Douglas County to swim & love the water since 2009

Smilefish Swim School has made a small change.  Russ will now be teaching all classes.  Classes are offered Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday afternoon and Wednesday morning.

Our classes meet once a week & they are on going.  There are no sessions.  This allows you to find a day & time that fits in your schedule and to stay with it for as long as you like.  We have kids that stay for several years (going from beginner to swim team) and we have kids that come & go a few months at a time.

Interested in starting lessons in January 2022?

If you're interested in getting started in January drop me a note the week following Thanksgiving.  By then I should have a good idea of what will be open after the holidays.
