Swim Lessons 2022

Registration for 2022 Swim Lessons begins May 2.

AGES 4+, LEVELS 1-6 (Level 6 is Pre-Swim Team)

See here for info about our Parent-Tot** class for ages 1-3!

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. Over time, 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.

Registration Info

  • Registration opens May 2 at 9:00 AM online. Classes fill quickly.
  • Because we are limited in our lesson capacity, we will limit to one lesson package per child for an early initial registration period. Starting May 9 at 9:00 AM, you may enroll your child for additional swim lessons.
  • Please register online.
  • Scholarships available. Apply at least 2 weeks prior to registration opening.
  • We reserve the right to change levels and times. Classes may be canceled if minimum is not met.
  • Swim Levels: Choose the level most appropriate for your child’s ability by reviewing the Swim Level Descriptions and Skills.
    You must be able to complete all the skills in one level before moving on to the next. 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.
  • 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.
