Swim classes have been a rite of passage for children since the first child was introduced to water. Some children and adults are afraid to learn and fight the water, while others seem born to float. Whichever age, stage or ability you possess, there is a class for you at one of the excellent community and private pools in Las Vegas. Here, you can find private instruction, group lessons or competitive classes to fulfill your needs. After all, there’s nothing quite like swimming in the desert.
