McCook, IL Swim Programs

We are NOT just a swim school. While our main focus is on teaching youngsters water safety and swim lessons, we have programs for swimmers whether you're 6 months old or a senior citizen. 

We offer a variety of swim lessons starting with Baby 'n Me at 6 months, small group lessons starting at age 3 and organized according to age. An evaluation for each swimmer is done on the first day of each session. This will allow us to assign them to the appropriate skill level within their age group.

  • Lap Swimming – Swim on your own during lap swim or open swim times. Check out the schedule for open swim times. A drop in fee, ten pass or membership is required for lap swimming.

  • Water Aerobics & Water RunningWe offer a variety of classes emphasizing cardio conditioning and muscle toning.

  • Private lessons and Adult Swim Lessons are also available. Contact us for more information on packages and pricing.

  • Party Rental – Let Max Aquatics host your next birthday party, end of season sport’s party or special event.

  • Family Swim – Open pool time to come in and practice what you learned in lessons or just to have some family fun. When you are currently enrolled in swim lessons, you have free access to the pool during the designated open family swim times.

We look forward to seeing you at the pool!
