What can my child expect the first day of swim lessons?

If it is your child’s first time at SwimKids, we recommend you come 10 minutes early your first day. This will give you a chance to meet our helpful team, Site Manager and Coach. You will promote your child’s success if you are not rushed the first day and give your child a few minutes to become acclimated to the environment and get a warm smile from their coach. At SwimKids you will find our swim coaches take a caring and energetic approach to teaching children to swim.

The 5 great tips to having a fantastic first lesson:

  1. Come ready to swim. Bring your swimmers in their own suit. (Babies parents remember you need two swim diapers)
  2. Arrive 10 minutes early to check in at the front desk and have your swimmer use the restroom.
  3. Anyone NOT fully vaccinated must wear a mask properly covering both their mouth and nose.
  4. Bring a towel and snack for after class.
