[SIZE=3]We recently moved to West Valley and have been having a lot of trouble finding swim lessons for our boys. I have spent hours searching the internet and calling all of the rec centers, public schools, gyms, etc. within ½ an hour of West Valley, and have not been able to come up with anything that meets our needs, so I am hoping that someone can help us. [/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]We have 3- and 4- year old boys, and we want them to be able to take swim lessons year round (so they would need to be at an indoor pool). We would also like to have our younger son start taking lessons sometime this year too. We need to find affordable lessons (we cannot afford to pay for private lessons for each of our children). So it would need to be a group lesson. But the biggest thing that we are looking for in swim lessons is the schedule. I really want to find lessons that are once a week (on a weekday). Once our boys start preschool in the fall I really do not want to overschedule them by signing them up for swim lessons 3 or 4 times a week. [/SIZE]
Before we moved here, we took the boys to the local YMCA for their lessons on Wednesday evenings, and the sessions ran for 2 or 3 months at a time. I would love to find someone in this area who would be willing to teach lessons once a week (and I would prefer not doing it on the weekends). Does anyone know of a place we can call that might offer these options? We are considering dropping swim lessons altogether if we can’t find anyone who will teach lessons less than 3 times a week once school starts in the fall, even though I really don’t want to take my boys out of swimming altogether because they love it so much, it is good exercise, and an important safety skill. Any suggestions would be helpful!

It looks like the West Valley Fitness Center holds swim lessons only several times a week.

Here is the link for the fitness center itself.
West Valley City, UT - Official Site - Family Fitness Center

According to the online registrations, they hold swim lessons only two or three times a week at different times, depending on your children's levels

My wife just signed up both of our kids, ages 4 and 6, for swimming lessons at the West Valley fitness center. They are twice a week, not just once per week.

sorry, kind of off the topic, but how is it living in West Valley? schools, community and homes?
