Swim Lessons

The Bulldog Swim School offers year-round swim lessons for all ages and stages. Classes are available to both members and non-members of San Mateo Athletic Club. Although we specialize in small group classes, we also offer semi-private and private classes to meet your needs. Our comprehensive collection of programs will satisfy every level of swimmer. We have a brand new state-of-the-art instructional pool which is kept at 88° F. It is perfectly designed for swim lessons with an abundance of space, crystal clear water and entry steps covering the full length of the pool.
