Sahuarita Stingrays Lessons

Swim Lesson Registration is now open!

Private lessons will be available per request (contact [email protected])

Stingray Swim Lessons are broken into 3 easy to identify categories:
Water Safety - focusing on teaching basic water safety
Learn to Swim - focusing on teaching basic swimming on the belly and back
Stroke Development - learn freestyle and backstroke and get ready for swim team
No evaluations are needed for lessons, we have a short questionnaire in the level description for you determine which level is best for your child. Please read the descriptions carefully!  If your child is placed in the incorrect level for their current skill, we will do our best to re-schedule you for the correct level.
Each lesson is a 20-minute semi-private class with a certified instructor.  Lessons are scheduled in weekly blocks of 4 lessons ($80/swimmer).  We recommend booking 2 weeks at a time when possible to maximize learning and retention of skills.
How old does my child need to be to participate in lessons?
Swimmers must be at least 4 years old to participate in the Swim Lesson Program. The program is intended to teach young swimmers the basics of being safe in the water and then the basic swim strokes. 
What do my swimmer(s) need for their lessons?
All swimmers need for lessons is an appropriate swimsuit and we very strongly recommend goggles. 
What if I can't make one of the 4 lessons in the weekly block? 
When registering for the weekly block of lessons, please be sure you can commit to each lesson. We do not offer refunds for missed classes.
What happens if a lesson is cancelled because of weather?
The only time lessons would be cancelled would be if the pool is closed for lightning or another reason outside of our control.  We will work with you to schedule a makeup lesson on another day.  
How long will my child need lessons for?
It depends. Every child is different and takes different amounts of time to learn skills.  For the most progress in the shortest amount of time, we recommend frequent lessons (the more you put into it, the more progress you're likely to see). Once again, we recommend booking 2 weeks of lessons in order to optimize learning and retention of skills.
What kind of COVID-19 Policies/Restrictions do I need to be aware of? 
  • Face Mask Policy: Face Masks are now optional when inside the Sahuarita Aquatic Center as per the SUSD district policy. 
  • Closed Pool Deck Policy: We are allowing Swim Lesson Families/Parents into the facility. However, if parents are too close to the pool deck, this can interfere with the lesson. The green turf areas and the covered benches are the designated parent observation areas. If there are special circumstances that would make this separation more difficult for the swimmer(s), please let us know and we can work to find a solution on an individual basis.
