Swimming Lessons

Catch the Wave

Catch the Wave Swim Club is a self-rescue, learn to swim program focusing on teaching infants and toddlers to roll over and float in the event of an accidental fall into water above their head.  We achieve this goal by providing a play-based curriculum delivered by professionally training and caring teachers.  Our small class sizes and progressive methodology make Catch the Wave an ideal learning solution for any swimmer.  Group swim lessons are available Tuesday & Thursday evenings.  Each child registered will have their own log-in with the Catch the Wave parent portal that allows parents to track their child’s progress, ask questions, or reschedule a lesson.  More information about Catch the Wave Swim Club can be found at

Register at Nash Recreation Center, over the phone at (815)732-3101, or online!  To report absences, schedule make-ups and inquire about student progress/issues please call Catch the Wave at (608)-340-3030 X 5, text (608)-340-3030 or email
