Lesson Information

Because of the ongoing Covid situation our 2021 summer lesson calendar is still up in the air. We are waiting for the next set of guidelines (phase 3) to better understand how we will be approaching the situation. Group lessons and social distancing is a bit tricky and balancing that with limits on capacity compounds the situation. We do know that we will likely offer at least some private lessons this coming season, but that will likely be a slow roll out, starting with member families prior to opening up to the general public.

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 2019 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
