Swim Lessons

Swimming is a skill that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. Mercy HealthPlex offers the American Red Cross Learn to Swim program with a focus on how to be safe in and around the water. Our instructors are experienced Certified Water Safety Instructors (WSI) and many are former competitive swimmers/coaches. Lessons are available for all skill levels and ages six months through adults.

Group lessons are available in six-week sessions throughout the year. Class size is limited to maintain a low instructor-to-student ratio. Private (one-on-one) and semi-private (two/three-on-one) lessons are also available and can be scheduled at your convenience.  Contact Sarah Davis, Swim Lesson Coordinator, at 513-624-1886 or sarahdavis@mercy.com for more information.
