Swim Lessons Update


North Liberty Community Center Swim Lessons Update

We are planning the return of swim lessons with safety in mind. No parent-tot or tadpoles classes will be offered during this pandemic. Instructors will teach from deck with some exceptions. Tadpoles, Levels 1-3 will require a parent in water with child and will be 25 minutes in length. Level 4-6 will not require parent participation and focus on skill correction and technique development, these will be 35 minutes in length. While in water, we will try our best to promote distances between participants. We ask that you arrive with swimsuit on under clothes as we have limited changing space available. For lessons that do not need parent in water with child, we are asking parents to wait for child in one’s own vehicle during class times. Limited space may be offered on balcony, if allowed chairs in the balcony will be spread 6 feet apart and limited. Registration begins September 8 for residents and September 10 for non-residents and is available first come, first served, on-line only beginning at 6am.
