Backyard Lessons

Do you have access to a private pool this summer?

We believe learning to swim should be a fun and rewarding way for children to develop self-confidence and independence. Your backyard pool is a great setting to learn a love for swimming!

Enjoy the convenience of having our certified instructors come to you! Read this PDF: Backyard-swimming-lessons-host-info

Note: We will only accommodate the outlaying areas of Kelowna, West Kelowna and Lake Country if Instructors are available.

We have had nothing but positive experiences with the entire WETS team. Our three children have participated in a variety of the WETS programs over the past 9 years; from backyard swim lessons, group lessons, private sessions, and squads. The instructors are professional, knowledgeable, patient and make learning to swim fun. We have really appreciated the small group format and ability to choose the session time that best suits our family’s busy schedule. – Karlee Sieben
