Swim Lesson FAQ's

Swim Lesson FAQ's

Will group lessons take place this summer?

Group lessons are back! Enroll your future swimmer in our group lessons and watch them learn swimming fundamentals with the support and encouragement of their peers.

Are you offering a pool membership this season?

We are excited to bring back the pool Membership. Members get special pricing on lessons, camps and pool party rentals. Registration form located here.

Can my child take a swim lesson while they are at camp or after care?

Campers may enroll in either private or group lessons during camp hours and staff will escort campers to and from lessions EXCEPT during the 2:30 and 3:00pm private swim slots. Parents are responsible for transporting your child to and from a swim lesson at 2:30 or 3:00pm. Please keep in mind that if your camper is enrolled in a camp that attends a field trip, the missed lesson can not be rescheduled or refunded. 

How many children can participate in a semi-private swim lesson?

We allow a maximum of two children per lesson, the swimmers must be at or near the same level of swim ability.

Can I request a specific instructor for my swimmer?

Yes. While we cannot guarantee any requests, we do our best to accommodate requests when we can. If you wish to request an instructor, please include your request in the “customer notes” when you register online. 

What does my child need to bring to swim lessons?

Your child should come to swim lessons in a swimsuit (and swim shirt if desired) and bring a towel. Goggles are recommended but not required. Please tie back long hair.

I need to enroll my swimmer in lessons, but I am facing financial hardship. Is there anything that I can do?

We understand that swim lessons are essential. If you are facing financial hardship, please apply for the Danaz Salak Swim Lesson Scholarship. Please visit https://www.marinwood.org/pool/danaz-salak-swim-scholarship for details.

If a request is received after Wednesday, you will forfeit 50% of the lesson fee. No refunds will be granted once a given session of lessons has begun.
