There will also be a Parent/Child class (for parents and children ages 6 to 36 months, together in the water). This class will be offered during all five sessions at 11:30am.

The Diving class is only offered at 9, 10, and 11am and Levels 6 and 7 at 9:30, 10:30, and 11:30am during all sessions.

Please refer to the level descriptions for suggested age suitability. Suggested ages are based on student and instructor safety as well as numerous studies on student success in learning. Class space is limited to maintain the proper student/teacher ratio. The online registration form shows the number of spaces remaining for each class.

If you have questions, please refer to the FAQ page. If you cannot find an answer to your question, you should email us. DO NOT call the pool. We cannot respond to voice messages.

Swim Lesson Availability for 2018

Swim lesson registration is now open.

After June 1, lessons must be paid in full at the time of registration.

For Sessions 3, 4, and 5, we have opened additional spaces in Levels 1, 2, 3, and the Parent/Child class.

Registration opened on April 2. Remaining spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no wait list.

Spaces may become available on short notice due to last minute cancellations and changes, so check back often. You may also be able to enroll your child in a class that appears to be full, by talking with the aquatics director in person at the pool during swim lesson hours.

Once a session has begun, you can no longer register for that session using the online form. You can only register for the current session on-site (at the pool).
