We are excited that you are interested in advancing your child's swim skills! Please see important information below about swim lessons.

Registration for swim lessons will be available in person at all work days starting with 5/12. There will be three, two week sessions that consist of 8 lessons each. We ask that swimmers attend a minimum of 6 of the 8 sessions. Swim lesson classes are capped at ten swimmers per class and are free for Full Share Members. Associate Member lesson fee is $40.00 per session however, Full Share members have first priority. 

​Sign up will be on a first come, first served. Each lesson will be capped at 10 swimmers. Families are limited to registering for one session per child to ensure that as many members as possible have the option to take advantage of swimming lessons. If a child is listed for more than one session, then the second registration will be deleted.  All registered swimmers must be present on the first day of their session or the spot in the class will be given to an unregistered swimmer present on that day.

Group swimming lessons are a two-week experience intended to provide basic instruction in elementary stroke development geared towards building foundational swimming skills and water safety.   Children with basic swim skills interested in advanced skills or having a more sustained (six weeks) learning experience should consider joining the Swan Lake Stingrays swim team as a Junior Stingray. Swim team is open to any member's child(ren) who is five years old and meets the pre-requisites outlines on the swim team page.
