Mini Maniacs
Enrollment in Mini Maniacs is limited to 20 children ages 5-6 (must be 5 years old by June 1). Children receive in-water instruction with a 4:1 instructor/child ratio. Consistency and repetition are the keys to success! Children should be able to listen to a 1/2 hour of instruction while in their group.

Visit the Merrimack Swim Team website for Registration Information and practice schedules.

Private and Semi-Private Lessons

Merrimack is delighted to offer private swim lessons throughout the summer for kids of all ages and all abilities who are members of the pool. Ask to see the swim instructors’ books at the Lifeguard Office. There you will see their swim biographies and the times they are available to teach.

To offer private lessons at Merrimack, each instructor must be a Merrimack Pool member and MPRA-approved, have relevant teaching experience, and have current lifeguard certifications.

Questions about private swim lessons should be addressed to MPRA Board Member, Susan Eagle, not Coach Elizabeth, as private lessons are not part of the swim team program.

The assistant coaches charge $25 per 30 minutes. Cash Payment is required when the lesson is completed.

Elizabeth Lofgren, Head Swim Coach, provides stroke technique lessons for swim team members, older children, triathletes and adults. Please contact Coach Elizabeth to schedule lessons.
