General Pool Information

 

Welcome to the Lomira Pool.  Our pool is staffed by certified instructors/guards who take pride in offering you quality lessons as well as a safe environment in which to swim.

 

Philosophy:  Our philosophy at the Lomira Pool is to give students a positive learning experience in the aquatic environment.  Our goal is to help each student attain their highest potential in swimming - to learn and refine all strokes, to become strong swimmers, and to understand and practice personal safety and basic rescue techniques.  It is important to us that each swimmer's needs are individually met.  We will continue to individualize and adapt content in order to instill success for all swimmers.  Students will receive the certificate which best represents their level of successful achievement.  We highly encourage people of all ages to learn to swim.
