Registration for Summer 2018 is now open for members and guests. You can register with your ShopTD account. If you have any questions, please call (530) 582-9627 or email aquatics@tahoedonner.com.

Group swim lessons are 30 minutes long, and each session runs Monday through Friday for one week. To provide consistent, high-quality swim lessons, participants are required to attend the first lesson of any session for which they are enrolled. All participants must be registered at least one week prior to the class start date. A minimum enrollment of three participants per session is required. Classes may be cancelled due to insufficient enrollment. We ask that a parent or guardian remain on the pool deck for the duration of the lesson.

Group Swim Lesson Levels

Level 0: Guppies (Parent/Tot) – 11:30AM-12PM – Prerequisite: None

Children ages 6 months to 3 years will spend time in the water with both their parent and a trained instructor. Adults will be taught to help children learn water adjustment as well as the use of supported floats and kicks. Songs and games help the instruction and keep things fun. This is a water exploration experience for both parent and child.

Level 1: Bubble Blowers – 11:30AM-12PM – Prerequisite: Age 2+

Children age 2 and older can adjust to the water and a swim lesson setting. Instructors focus on introducing the following skills: water entries and exits, bubble blowing, underwater exploration, kicking, arm movements, body position and supported locomotion.

Level 2: Starfish – 10:45-11:15AM – Prerequisite: Level 1

Instructors will build on prior water abilities, focusing on the basic skills of floating, gliding, retrieving underwater objects and unsupported swimming (front and back).
