Swim Lessons

Thank you for a great 2018 swim lesson season. Stay tuned for 2019 swim lesson season information.

Classes meet for two weeks on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday.

Swim lessons for summer 2018 are being run by A&B Pool Services and will begin the week of June 4th.

Lessons are conducted Monday - Thursday with Friday reserved as a weather make-up day. In the event of multiple poor weather days, every attempt will be made to make up missed days, but there will be no guarantee of full 8 classes in a session. Lessons must be paid for in full at time of registration. One week prior to each session, a class may be dropped and funds transferred to another session. No refund for cancellation after class session begins. SCCA Members have the option to register online, or with the concessions staff during regular pool hours. Online registration begins May 1. Non-members must register with the concession staff, beginning opening day, May 26.

A minimum of three children is required for each class. Register your children in the highest level they completed last summer. If you do not know which level to register your child in, the lifeguards can usually get a pretty good idea by watching a child swim. Adjustments may be made the first day of classes.


Session A: June 4 - 15

Session B: June 18 - 29

Session C: July 9 - 20

Session D: July 23 - Aug 3
