Important Information about Swim Lessons…

  • Children who have been introduced to a pool setting and feel comfortable in the water prior to starting lessons tend to be more successful.  Our Family Swim time is an excellent opportunity to expose your child to a pool environment prior to beginning their lessons.
  • Refunds are available for class withdrawals before the first day of class.  Once a session begins, the session fee may be refunded for medical reasons only. Refund requests must be accompanied by a doctor’s note.
  • Fees may be pro-rated for those joining a class after the first session only, as space allows.
  • Level changes may not be possible.  However, our Instructors are flexible and can challenge students according to their unique abilities.
  • Class sizes: minimum = 3 students, maximum = 6 students.  Class levels may be combined so a class doesn’t have to be cancelled due to under-enrollment.
  • We will try to honor requests for instructors to the best of our ability.  Occasionally, a substitute instructor may be used to avoid cancelling classes
  • Only Tukwila Pool employees are allowed to use the Tukwila Pool to instruct individuals and groups.  Coaches of teams that have a current rental contract with the Tukwila Pool may use rental space for private instruction.
