2018 Lessons

Wedgwood Swim Club provides a unique opportunity for the young swimmer to learn. Our pool begins at only 6 inches in depth and we have a substantial shallow wading area, which allows small children a means to stand up and stay above water while gaining confidence in their abilities. Our instructors are dedicated to providing a safe, fun, high quality swim program.

WE DO offer lessons to non-pool members! (In 2017 more than 90% of our lessons were taken by non-members) Feel free to drop by check out our pool. If you have questions, call us at 206-523-8211 or contact our Lesson Coordinator at: swimlessons@wwpool.org

Morning Group Lessons:  Our morning sessions are divided into 5 sessions throughout the summer. Each session is two weeks long and classes are held Monday – Friday.  REGISTRATION NOTE: Non-Member families who were enrolled in lessons during sessions 4 or 5 in 2017 have currently enrolled status for session 1 this year. More information on evening lessons can be found below.

Evening Lessons:  Update – After re-evaluating our scheduling and staffing we will be able to offer a second session of evening lessons.  Second session dates will be: Mon. July 23rd, Wed. July 25th, Mon. July 30th and Wed. Aug 1st. We plan on doing registration for this session a little bit differently than we typically do. We will first be opening registration for these evening lessons to members as we usually do on the Wednesday morning of registration beginning at 8:30am – July 18th.  What will be different, is that Non-Members currently enrolled in evening lessons will then have priority to register on the 18th beginning at 5:30pm. This will be a first come first served registration as per our usual process. If you have questions or would like more information please contact us.

Due to scheduling issues our evening lesson program will be greatly reduced this summer.  We will be running one session of 4 classes total and they will start on Monday, July 9th (see session schedule below).  Registration for evening lessons will take place at the same time as our session 2 registration with members having priority, followed by those in lessons during session 4 or 5 – last summer, and finally those new to our program.  Please check the enrollment dates for more specific information.

During each lesson, your child will receive small group instruction and guided practice for 30 minutes. Please note that during Evening Lessons, our facility will be open to our membership, which offers your swimmer a smaller class size than our Morning Lessons, but prevents us from offering levels above Beg I or a Practice Swim (“free”) Time. Evening lessons total 2 hours of instruction.
