Swim lessons

Due to COVID-19, pools and aquatic centers are closed for the summer of 2020.

Parks & Recreation’s goal is for swimming to become a lifetime recreational activity for everyone. Lessons will teach the development of proper skills for water safety. They are also designed for fun and fitness.

General information

  • Payment is due at the time of registration (no exceptions).
  • Payments are non-refundable.

  • A minimum of three participants must be registered in order for the class to be held.
  • To stay at the pool after the lesson is finished, both the parent and child must pay regular admission prices.

Parents of swimmers

We believe the parents’ attitude will help their child have a fun, positive experience at swimming lessons. Children may cry during lessons due to being away from their parents, fear of water, or difficulty with the instructor. Because children can locate a parent and will cry for attention, parents will be asked to sit in designated areas only.

A child will sometimes test ways to avoid lessons, such as crying, playing sick or hanging on to the parent. We understand a fear of new situations and ask that the instructor and the parent work together to help the child overcome these anxieties.
