Children’s Swimming Lessons

Excel Aquatics is excited to be back at the College of Saint Rose again for a new session of children’s swim lessons! Similar to the Spring, we will be offering private and semi-private lessons in order to most effectively provide a safe and socially distanced environment for all of our families and staff. These lessons are open to all swimmers ages 3 to 13 years, including both those who have participated previously in our learn to swim and pre-competitive programs. As we move forward, we hope to resume our group lessons and pre-competitive practices in the near future.

Please read through our safety protocol prior to registering, as we want to ensure every family is comfortable and fully understands the regulations set forth. 

Registration, program dates, and cost can be found below.

Key Points

  • Families must enter through the appropriate SIDE ENTRANCE LOADING DOCK of the athletic building
  • Come with your suit on. While we do have changing tents on deck, we will not have access to locker rooms. Bathroom use will be allowed in the event of an emergency.
  • Only one parent/guardian is allowed to bring each swimmer to their lesson. No additional spectators/siblings are allowed at this time.
  • Masks are optional as of 3/15/22
  • Any last minute schedule changes due to changes in county/state, or Saint Rose regulations will be sent out immediately, so please check your email each day before attending lessons.
  • Please respect the coaches and staff who must ensure protocol is followed. If you have an issue with the regulations, please do not register for our classes. In order for us to offer lessons, we must follow the appropriate protocol.

Class Schedules


Our next swim lesson session will begin in Fall 2022. Please check back for more information on registration and session dates.

Please note that all of the lessons in our system are set to private. Once registration opens and if you would like to register for a semi-private class, please register your first student under your preferred private lesson slot, then email us at [email protected] to add the second student. If you would like to register for an adaptive lesson, please email us directly at [email protected]

Due to COVID restrictions and safety precautions, slots are limited. If you are unable to register for your desired class, PLEASE add yourself to the waitlist for that specific class. There is always a chance that we will be able to add additional classes for the session if more pool time becomes available.
