Team Building and Leadership Programs

Increase group and self awareness through Icebreaker and team building activities. Customize a learning experience to meet your goals. A unique method for student or faculty/staff organizations to foster unity by learning more about each other, emphasizing trust, communication, and leadership. Participants can work out the kinks that may inhibit a group from working efficiently as a team. Each event is 2-3 hours and can accommodate up to 60 people.

Private Group Swim Lessons

Private group lessons are for groups of 2 to 5 people, which are created by groups of participants.  The group should include swimmers with similar goals and scheduling availability, and an instructor will be assigned based on the needs of the group as a whole. Examples of groups that have used this service include neighbors with the same aged kids, students from the same floor or college house and students who are all members of existing campus groups. For more information or to register your group, contact Matt Livziey, Aquatics Coordinator, 215.898.7155.
