Group Swim Lessons for Children

NEW! For your convenience, we have restructured group lessons to five days a week and weekly sessions!

Lessons are 30 minutes long and each session runs Monday through Friday for one week. Morning lessons are held at Trout Creek Recreation Center and evening lessons are held at Northwoods Pool. To provide consistent, 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 class start date. A minimum enrollment of 3 participants per session is required. Classes may be cancelled due to insufficient enrollment.

Dates: Monday – Friday; see session dates below
