Swim Lessons

**Update – Registration for Session Three is now closed. Email lessons@glenwoodpool.org with questions.**

Glenwood offers group swim lessons daily (Monday – Friday) at 11:30, 12:00, or 12:30,  beginning June 21.  All classes are 30 minutes long.  Each session is 2 weeks (10 classes).  Non-members are welcome, but must check out at the front desk and depart the pool within 30 minutes after their lessons.

Students are grouped based on age and level.  This year we are not pre-screening swimmers.  Please refer to the descriptions below to determine your swim level.  If you still have questions, contact the swim lesson coordinator at lessons@glenwoodpool.org.  The swim instructors will fine-tune level placements when the classes start, if necessary.
