  • Children’s Classes: Does your child want to learn to swim but you're not sure how to get started? Online registration is available and our Swim Lessons Guidelines should answer most of your questions. We offer group lessons year round and have levels that range from beginner to Swim Team Prep. We even have parent/child lessons for children 6 months-5 years old. Don't know what level to register your child for? See our list of requirements for each level. We also offer a variety of children's fitness classes including Yoga, Zumba and even weekday classes for children who are homeschooled. With hundreds of youth classes offered every session, the Swim and Fitness Center is sure to have a lesson that fulfills your child's needs.
  • Private Swim Lessons: The center is proud to offer private lessons for those who are interested in a one-on-one learning experience. Private lessons are available for adults and children of any skill level. The cost for private lessons is $40/half hour for one student (or $60/half hour for two students at the same time who are of the same skill level). We offer a $5 discount per lesson to Annual, Summer, or Winter Full Facility and Aquatic only members.   

    We only offer private instruction during our recreation swim hours. (For a complete list of hours view our current schedule. Note, anytime the North pool is listed as open is a possibility, however there is no guarantee an instructor will be available at all times.) Instructor recommendation based on the information included on the private lesson request form (so the more info the better!). As soon as we receive your request we'll begin to work to pair the client with an instructor. This process typically takes 1 to 2 weeks, however, in peak request times this can take longer. In addition, your request may take longer to fulfill based on instructor availability during your requested times. Private Swim Lessons are scheduled subject to a qualified instructor and pool space being available at the times requested. There is no guarantee we will be able to accommodate all requests.

    Some clients find it beneficial to participate in group and private instruction at the same time. In case you decide to register for group lessons in addition to private instruction view the City's Recreation Guide for the current session. 

    To request more information about private lessons, complete and return the Private Lesson Request Form via fax to 240-314-8759 or email Debbie Bouwkamp. Information on memberships can be found on our Membership Rates and Information page. To receive the discounted member rate a valid Annual, Winter or Summer Aquatic or Full Facility membership card bearing the student’s name must be scanned at the front desk at sign-in.
