Benefits of Membership: Swim Lesson Discounts

Did you know that Center Members enjoy reduced rates on swim lessons—as much as $50 per session? Take advantage of our special monthly membership offer and start saving!

Why Learn How to Swim?

A little-known fact of swim lessons is that it helps build social skills. During lessons, children interact with both the instructor and their peers, teaching a child to listen, take turns, share, and respect others, all valuable skills. With swimming lessons, your child also learns drowning prevention and how to stay safe in the water, all while developing a lifelong skill. The ultimate benefit is that swimming is a healthy and beneficial hobby that your child will enjoy for the rest of their life!

Due to Popular Demand: The Return of Summer Swim Intensives

Our popular summer swim lesson intensives are back! These 30-minute lessons (available for Frogs – Seals) will take place every day, Monday–Thursday for two weeks straight. This is equivalent to a full session packed into two weeks and gives children an extra boost in the pool. We’re offering a one-week session as well as three, two-week sessions over the summer. Below please find information on our first two sessions. Space is limited, so sign up now!

Aquatics FYI

  • Only Center Members may stay and swim after classes. If your child does not have a Center Membership in addition to their swim class registration, they are not allowed to use the indoor or outdoor pools after swim class.
  • If your child is under the age of 13, a parent/guardian MUST remain present in the center. Please do not drop your child off and leave the premises.
  • Children not yet potty-trained must wear a reusable swim diaper in the pool. You may purchase these at the Welcome Center.
  • If your little swimmer is three years or older, they must transition into a Tadpoles class instead of a Water Wigglers class. This is important for developmental growth as well as learning through positive peer influence.
  • Do you live in Foster City? Ask about discounts on public rates just for Foster City residents!

Summer Reminders

  • Beginning June 25 through August 10, Camp Keff campers will be joining us in the indoor pool from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm and the outdoor pool from 12:00 – 2:00 pm. If you plan on swimming between these times, please check the online pool schedule for exact dates.
  • Please keep showers as short as possible in order to accommodate all participants (and help conserve water, too!).
  • If your child spends a long time in the water, please have him/her wear water shoes, as these protect the soles of tender feet.
  • Please limit towel usage to one per person.
