We are excited to announce that after working with the health department we are able to offer a few types of swim lessons this summer. All the suggestions for these formats were given and approved by the Summit County Health Department to maintain safety measures at this time. The Health Department continues to recommend no swim team or large group lessons/activities at this time. Please notice that if there is interest in the adapted group lessons the pool would change vulnerability hour from 11-12 daily to 10-11 daily. The open swim would remain 12-8 daily.

 


Option #1– Private Swim lessons to be scheduled based on your availability. All levels, skills, and ages offered. One-on-one instruction. Upon completion of sign up, an instructor will contact you to schedule lessons. These lessons are per household. One child is $20 per 30-minute lesson and two children (similar skills) would be $30 per 30-minute lessons.

Our levels are explained at the bottom of this page.

If you are interested in these modified lessons please complete this form to sign up!  After registration, your instructor will advise you how to pay him/her directly.


Option #2– Small group lessons (less than 5 children per class) Levels 1-5 offered in the following weeks:

  • June 29-July 3
  • July 6-July 10
  • July 13-July 17
  • July 20- July 24

Levels 1-3 would require an adult to participate in the water with the child as the instructor models skills for adults to work on with the child. Levels 4-5 would work with an instructor by following modeling cues (in water and on land) during the lesson.

These lessons would cost $25 per week per child Monday-Friday for 30 minutes a day. The lessons would be held between the hours of 11:00-11:30 or 11:30-12:00 based on interest. Upon signing up you would be contacted with your child’s lesson time. The cost of lessons covers paying the instructor.

Our levels are explained at the bottom of this page.

If you are interested in these modified lessons please complete this form to sign up!  After registration, we will invoice you through our normal FS&T billing process.

*Lesson costs in previous years were $25 for eight 30 minute lessons but due to smaller classes and more adult support in levels 1-3, they are $25 for five 30 minute lessons this year. In the future, we plan to return to eight 30 minute lessons for $25.

 


We understand that this is very different from years prior in regards to swimming lessons but we are cooperating with the Summit County Health Department to ensure we are following all guidelines and keeping all of our staff and members safe. Thank you for your understanding.
