Swim Programs for Kids

Discover Aquatics

Since 2002 Discover Aquatics in Olympia, WA has been offering a unique swimming environment for swimmers of all ages and ability levels.
Our warm pool is kept at a very comfortable 87 to 89 degrees year-round, which creates a comfortable swimming experience and helps students focus on instruction rather than on fighting chills!
Small class sizes of 3:1 and 4:1 also allow for greater focus and more instruction time in the water. Our Parent-Tot classes begin at 4 months of age, with children generally advancing to group classes at approximately 3 years of age. Teen and adult lessons are also available!
