Registration open for swim lessons

Swim lessons for youth available
Warm spring days are here which means people are flocking to our beaches and swimming pools. While enjoying the sun and fun, it is important to take basic safety precautions because unfortunately, drowning is the leading cause of death for children 1 to 4 years old in Florida. That’s why drowning prevention, education and awareness are critically important. Water safety is not just for young children; it is also good practice for all youth and adults. Registration is open now for swim lessons for youth and adults.

Youth swim lessons (ages 6 months to 17)
Cost: $30 for six classes*
*Financial scholarship provided for qualifying participants
Locations: Campbell Pool and Cypress Aquatic Center

Adult swim lessons
Classes begin Monday, June 17
Cost: $30 for four classes
Location: Campbell Pool

Adult private swim lessons are also available by request. Register for swim lessons at the Cypress Aquatic Center located at 981 George W. Engram Blvd. 

Parents, please be advised that kids have to take a swim test to be placed in the proper swim class. Parents and kids should come prepared for the test when registering for the swim lessons or schedule a date to go through the swim test prior to the start of the swim session. For more information, please call 386-671-8392.
