Swim Lessons at Falcon Pool:

​For summer 2021, all swim lessons at City of Phoenix pools are FREE and will be offered to youth ages 3 to 12 only. 

Due to COVID-19 protocols, the number of classes and number of students in a class have been reduced. The format, schedule and registration process for lessons offered this summer also has been modified. 

Lessons will be presented in four sessions and registration for each session will have its own registration date, as listed below:

2021 Swim Lesson Sessions and Registration Schedule:

  • Session A: June 7 to June 17 – registration opens May 13
  • Session B: June 21 to July 1 – registration opens June 10
  • Session C: July 5 to July 15 – registration opens June 24
  • Session D: July 19 to July 29 – registration opens July 8

Due to the limited space available in each session and class, a registration waitlist will be maintained. Those who register for a class and do not attend the first class in their session will lose their spot to a student on the waitlist.

Students will be asked to register in one of two categories – non-swimmer or swimmer. Students for non-swimmer classes will be required to have a parent or guardian accompany them in the pool during each lesson. For the non-swimmer classes, an instructor will be teaching and guiding the parent/guardian about how to help their child with the swimming skills being taught.

Prior to registering, please determine if your child is a non-swimmer or swimmer by matching the following benchmarks to your child's skill level. A non-swimmer would be categorized as a student with a skill level within benchmarks 1 to 5, while a swimmer would be categorized as a student with a skill level within benchmarks 6 to 9. ​
