Do I need to be a member of Parkwood Community Club to participate in swim lessons?

Yes, for those of you not already a full member we offer a Swim Lessons Only Membership. The cost of this is - Swim Lesson Only Membership per session per a family with - 1-2 students $5,  3-4 students $10,  5-6 students $15 etc. (This membership is only good for the time of the swim lessons) If you wish to get onto the wait list or find prices for the full membership, please see our membership section on this web site.

If I am a full member, do I need to pay for the swim lessons?

Yes, whether you have a full membership or just a swim lesson only one you need to also pay the swim lesson fee each session.

Private Lessons (1 student w/1 instructor) $18.00 per half hour
Semi Private Lessons (2 students w/1 instructor) $24.00 per half hour ($12 per student)
Semi Private Lessons (3 students w/1 instructor) $21.00 per half hour ($8 per student)
At this time we are asking that semi-private lessons are of the same household and of approximately the same swim level.

As a Swim Lessons Only Member are we allowed to swim at other times at the pool?

No, to swim other times than during your swim lesson you will need to become Full Members.

How long (time wise) is the wait list for swim lessons?

There is no real way to answer that. If you are on the wait list it means you are waiting for someone in the program to need/want to back out of their spot (usually due to other sports or activities). Then at that point you would need to be available the day & time that they vacate. This does mean sometimes you may be far down the list but no one else above you can fill that spot and you would get it.

What lesson program do you follow?

We have put together our own program. It has background mainly in American Red Cross but combines some YMCA, Swim America and a few other Community Programs that the teachers have worked with.

How old do students need to be to take lessons

Four years old seems to be a good age to start private lessons but we have been able to start a few kids earlier than that especially if an adult is willing to get in the pool with them to get them started. Of course kids that are 6 months-about 3 years old will need an adult in there far longer due to size and maturity. Parent Tot kids really seem to do much better in a group setting and we hope to bring that back soon but if you wish to do the private lesson we will do our best with you.

Do you do adult lessons?

Yes, we do. It is often harder to find time for adult lessons but we try our best to fit you in.
