Lessons are offered Monday, Wednesday, and Friday between 3–7 p.m. Swim lesson availability is subject to Lane County risk level guidelines.

  2. Our aquatics team will walk you through an online form to learn about your specific needs.
  3. Then, we'll check back in with you within five business days to confirm your instructor, date, and time.
  4. Arrive at the pool no sooner than 15 minutes before the start of your lesson.
  5. To maintain building capacity limits, only swimmers (students and in-the-water parent or guardian) are admitted. No spectators are permitted at this time.

  7. Students need a guardian in the water with them for at least the first lesson as the swim instructor evaluates the student's ability to swim independently.

Yes, a parent or guardian needs to be in the water with the child. After the first lesson, the instructor may let you know if your child does not require your assistance in the lesson.
 
Why do I need to be in the water with my child if there is a swim instructor?
According to state guidelines, swim instructors must remain at least 6 feet away from students. So, a guardian is needed with the child to ensure safety.
