The Learn to Swim program offers free swim lessons for toddlers (1½-5), children (6-17), and adults (18+) of all ages at our indoor pools.

Teach your tot to be ready to learn to swim! In this class, we'll get your tot used to the water, with the help of one of our Aquatic Specialists. Parents or guardians help their kids get familiar with the water, become comfortable floating on front and back, and be able to control their breath by blowing bubbles or submerging under water.

Pre-registration is required.  Learn to Swim is only for registered participants.  More information about the program can be found on the Learn to Swim page.
