2019 Swimming Lessons

2019 Season Swimming Lessons

Swimming Lessons at the Stansbury Pool are taught in five, two-week long sessions throughout the summer. We offer lessons at seven skill levels, from introductory swimming for preschoolers all the way up to rescue and endurance swimming.

Lessons run Monday through Friday the first week of a block and then Monday through Thursday the second week. We offer five lesson blocks. Enroll in as few or as many as you like.

When choosing a lesson level, it’s important to match students to their current skill level. Review the skills listed in each lesson. If your child can already perform all the skills listed one lesson lower than the level you’re considering, this level is probably a good fit.
