*2021 Swim Lesson Information will be avaialble in March with registration tentatively beginning Monday, April 5 at 8am online and at the Park Office.
GENERAL SWIM LESSON INFORMATION
- Swim Lessons fees are per session, per person. Lessons cannot be pro-rated for any reason.
- Swim Lessons are two weeks, Monday through Friday for 30 minutes each day.
- Lessons are held on all days, including holidays, rain or shine.
- If there is lightening detected, a dry class will be offered for all students.
- If the air temperature is lower than 60 degrees, a dry class alternative will be offered to participants whose parents choose not to have their chidlren get in teh water (All pools are heated).
- Water Babies and Water Tots are parent-tot classes. An adult must accompany the chidl in teh water for these levels. There is no cost for the adult to attend the class.
- In order to maximize time with your child, anyone not registered for the class will be asked to stay in the designated swim lessons area (including parents). Each Friday parents are invited to the pool deck / pool side to see their child's progress.
- During swim lessons we do not allow any flotation devices in the pool. We will have a lifejacket day for each level. Goggles are acceptable but will not be loaned to anyone that forgets them.
- Please know it is common for children to repeat levels before they are able to demonstrate each skill (and we encourage it!) It is not important how quickly they move through the program but that they master each skill within the level.
Registration for Swim Lessons may be done online or in the Park Office. Please note that online registration closes one week prior to the start of classes. Registration is still available in person at the Park Office until the session has begun.
