Group Swim Lessons
Group swim lessons are back! Learning to swim is an essential lifelong skill that provides basic safety around water and promotes a healthy lifestyle for years to come. Group lessons are perfect for children 4 years and up. Classes will be held at the outdoor pools this season. Group class sizes will be reduced to follow safety guidelines.
Two-week class sessions will be held daily Monday - Thursday at the Devonshire Aquatic Center between 5:15pm – 7:15pm. Eight weekly classes will be held at Skokie Water Playground on Saturday and Sunday between 8:45am – 9:50am.
Private Swim Lessons
Private instruction is available for those who do not wish to enroll in group lessons. “Private” lessons offer one-on-one instruction, while “Semi-Private” lessons allow two students to learn at the same time – perfect for friends or siblings. Our lessons are perfect for all ages and abilities. These pay-as-you-go lessons are available from June 10 through August 15, are held at either of our outdoor pools, and are subject to instructor availability.
