Smilefish Swim School

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

Smilefish has two instructors - Russ Marsh & Beth Moreau

Combined Russ & Beth have over 80 years experience teaching & coaching


Rather than retiring from teaching, Russ' schedule has been

changed to Wednesday mornings & afternoons/evenings and

Thursday afternoons/evenings.  He will also be taking a

Summer break from mid June through mid August.  

Russ' classes will be at the Hampden Inn. 


Beth is planning on teaching on Monday afternoon/evenings

during the school year.  During the Summer she manages

the huge Castle Rock Cruisers summer swim team.  

So, teaching during the summer is simply impossible.  Beth

teaches at a local school so her Smilefish schedule will follow

the DC School calendar.  Monday September 4th is Labor

Day so her classes will start on Monday September 11th.

Beth's classes will be at the Days Inn.

Smilefish Swim School offers no Summer lesson


We will start taking registration for Fall classes in mid-July.  

Families that were in Spring classes will have first choice to stay at their time.  If you're interested in classes, drop Russ an email

with your child's swimming level and we'll see what's open.

Smilefish classes meet once a week & 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 (beginner to swim

team) and we have kids that come & go a few months at a time.
