Why learn to swim with High Plains?

Our pool is maintained at 90 degrees – warmer than any other pool in Northern Colorado. This is especially important for the comfort of children and seniors while learning swimming skills.

At the heart of our swim program is a teaching staff that is known for their patience and affection for children. Our teachers form an emotional bond that plays an important role in your child’s success.

Our teachers are carefully selected for their maturity, understanding of child development and teaching skills. In addition to completing the extensive Swim Schools International training, they participate in staff in-service training on a regular basis.

Classes are 30 minutes, once a week using our award-winning “Gold Script” curriculum. All classes are a 1 to 1 student to teacher ratio, so swimmers get individualized attention while learning skills.

Adults Too! Our classes are specifically designed to help adult non-swimmers feel comfortable and competent in the water.
