  • The Belton Swim Center is located at 600 Lake Road in Belton, TX. Patrons should enter off of Sparta and drive behind Tiger Field and the baseball/softball fields. Once through the student parking lot, you will see the pool straight ahead. It is directly behind Belton High School. 
  • Parents may park in the Swim Center lot, or the student lot located adjacent to the swim center. Parking is on a first come, first served basis. 

What to Wear

  • Swimmers who are potty trained should wear a swimsuit and goggles that do not cover the nose. (Parent & Tot swimmers do not need goggles). 
  • No swim shoes. Swimmers must be barefoot when they enter the water. Swim shirts are ok, but must be lightweight and not traditional tshirts. 
  • Swimmers who are not potty trained MUST wear a reusable or throw away swim diaper. Regular diapers are now allowed. 
  • The Swim Center does not offer swim diapers, participants must bring their own.

What to Bring

  • Goggles (that do not cover the nose), Swim Suit, Towel, face covering, and non-slip sandals or shoes. 
  • We ask that all pool toys be left in the swim bag, or at home during the lesson. We will provide all equipment necessary for the lesson. 

When to Arrive

  • It is recommended that you show up 5 minutes before the lesson. There is a 15 minute window between lessons for swimmers to check in and get ready. It is always a good idea to have the students dressed and have gone to the bathroom before entering the pool. 
  • Classes will start on time. Late swimmers will not be permitted to make up lost time in another class or session. Please be on time to maximize your lesson. 


  • Parents are welcome to sit in the large bleachers and watch their children during swim lessons.
  • We ask that unless the instructor asks for your assistance, please stay in the bleachers until the remainder of the lesson.


Cancellation and/or Bad Weather

  • The Swim Center must close for 30 minutes if there is lightning within 10 miles. If the pool must close due to weather or maintenance, we will attempt to reschedule the cancelled lessons for the Friday of the same week. 
  • However, there is no guarantee that it will be rescheduled. 
  • An email will be sent out with detailed information should we have to reschedule or cancel.

Student Sickness

  • Lessons missed for illness or other activity will not be made up or refunded. Only lessons cancelled by the swim center will be attempted to be rescheduled. 

How will I know if they need to progress, or sign up for the next highest group?

  • At the end of the session, the instructor will go over the swimmers “report card” and send it home.
  • The report card will include the instructor's recommendation for next steps: next level up, preteam, etc.

My child is younger/older than the age listed, but their skill level is in another class. Which one should I sign him/her up for?

  • Ages are listed for reference, some swimmers may fall outside of those age ranges. Class should be selected based on skill level described. Have questions? Contact the Swim Center at (254) 215-2443.

How will I know which class to sign my child up for?

  • We do our best to describe the skill and age level recommended for each class. Please read the information carefully and decide which level to schedule. If you have questions, or need assistance, call the Swim Center at (254) 215-2443. 

I signed my child up for one level, but the instructor told me to sign up for the next level up. What should I do?

  • Call the Swim Center at (254) 215-2443 and inquire about moving classes after having already registered/paid. We will do our best to move and place you in the appropriate class at the same time. However, this is limited to class availability. 

I signed up for a class, but now want to change the date/time/level, how do I do that?

  • Call the Swim Center at (254) 215-2443 about moving classes if you are unable to do it online. There are no guarantees that space is available, but we will do our best to accommodate.
