Farmington Glen Lessons

2022 Semi-Private Youth Swim Lesson Clinics

 

The Farmington Glen offers a fantastic group lesson program to help kids get comfortable in the water and ready for swim team. Our Red Cross certified staff create a fun and safe environment for kids to learn everything from water safety and enjoyment, to breathing, to the four competitive swim strokes.

There is no minimum age requirement; however, participants must be potty trained and able to be in the water with an instructor. No parents or guardians are allowed in the water during lessons.

Registration will open Monday, May 23, 2022 at Noon.

The cost is $50/week for Glen members and $60/week for non-Glen members. Payment must be dropped off at the Glen front office by 1:00PM on the Saturday prior to the start of lessons to hold your spot for the following week. Please do not send payment through the mail. Payments can be made by cash or check.

CLINIC SESSIONS

There are six week-long sessions available, beginning on June 20th and finishing up on July 28th.

Each weekly session will run Monday-Thursday, from 11:15-11:45AM.

Fridays will be reserved as a make-up lesson for any day during the session that is cancelled by the lessons staff due to weather or pool closure. We will not cancel lessons due to rain or cool temperatures.

Please note that due to the 4th of July holiday, we will run lessons Tuesday-Friday during Session #3.

Each clinic group will be limited to 8-10 participants per session - broken up into two groups of 4-5 (varies depending on group). Since we have limited spots available, we ask that you only sign up for TWO week long sessions to start. If we have additional room or add additional staff, we will allow participants to register for additional weeks. Please email Molly Tyler at [email protected] if you would like to get on the waitlist for additional weeks.
