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 reduced 

to Wednesday morning & afternoon and Thursday afternoon.  

He will also be taking a Summer break from the end of May thru

mid August.  Russ' teaches classes at the Hampden Inn. 


Beth will teach Monday afternoon 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 September thru May.  That includes not

having classes on the occasional Monday holiday.

Beth's classes will be for beginners & will be at the Days Inn.

Smilefish Swim School no longer offers Summer lesson


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

Families that were in Spring classes will have first choice to stay at 

their day & 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.

In the Spring there will be swim team prep classes on Tuesdays (& maybe Mondays).   These classes will be 40 minutes in length and will run the 7 weeks

between D.C. School's Spring Break &

the start of the Cruisers.


Registration for these classes will open up after the first of the year.
