Swim Lessons

June 21 @ 9:25 am - 11:15 am

TENTATIVE DATE OF OPEN REGISTRATION:  MAY 11 at 9AM

AGES 4+, LEVELS 1-5, 6/Pre-Swim Team

Learn to swim in an outdoor swimming pool at Useless Bay Golf & Country Club. South Whidbey Learn to Swim lessons teach aquatic and safety skills in a logical progression. Our objective is to teach children to be safe in and around water, have fun, and learn basic swimming skills. Children can progress through 6 levels of swimming and safety skills. All classes will participate in Safety Day on the last day of each session. Each class will talk about age-appropriate safety skills as it pertains to pools, beaches, and boating. Certificates will be handed out on the last day of each session.

Please note the following changes due to COVID restrictions: 

Classes will be limited in size based on current guidelines. The price increase reflects this change. No siblings will be allowed on the pool deck unless they are taking a lesson at the same time.  Only one parent/caregiver allowed on the pool deck with each swimmer taking a lesson. Parent/Caregivers and swimmers must wear a mask at all times on the pool deck and stay 6 feet apart.  Please arrive and leave the pool in your swim suit.  Bathrooms will not be used for changing.

NOTE: Because we will be significantly limited in our lesson capacity, we may limit to one lesson per child for the summer, at least for an early initial registration period.

REGISTRATION – TENTATIVE DATE OF OPEN REGISTRATION:  MAY 11 at 9AM

Choose the level most appropriate for your child’s ability by reviewing the Swim Lesson Descriptions and Skills. The skills listed are the skills each class will work on. Students progress through levels at different speeds depending on several factors including their age, physical coordination and comfort in and around the water. When registering, please keep in mind:

Level 3 introduces side breathing and often needs to be repeated.

Level 4, 5 and 6/Pre-swim team are in the deep end.

Choose the session, dates and times for the appropriate skill level.

REGISTER ONLINE

If applying for a scholarship, do so at least 2 weeks prior to registration opening.

If your child is registered for a level that is not appropriate for his/her skills, we will make an effort to place that child in the correct class only if there is a vacancy. If there is no vacancy, a refund may be necessary (See refund policy). Do not intentionally register for a level that is not appropriate for your child’s skill level. Classes are filled on a first-come-first-served basis. If your desired level class fills, join the online waitlist. There will be no make-up days due to personal reasons or weather conditions.

We reserve the right to change levels and times based on enrollment. Classes may be canceled if minimum is not met.

Parent-Tot Swim Class

TOTS AGES 1-3, WITH AN ADULT

The emphasis of this program is to help young children relate to the water with comfort, to build self-confidence and to have fun. Children and parents will sing songs and play games that introduce basic skills such as blowing bubbles, floating and kicking. We require that one parent/adult guardian enter the water with each child and support/hold them up in the water. Children who wear diapers outside of the water must wear water diapers and plastic diaper covers while in the pool.

Location: Useless Bay Golf & Country Club outdoor swimming pool.
