Swim Lessons

Swimming is a life-long skill that is not only fun and good exercise – it can save your life. The Red Cross has developed swimming lessons for kids and adults that permit everyone the opportunity to learn in a safe environment, at their own pace. Learn-to-Swim classes are taught by certified, knowledgeable, and caring instructors who can help swimmers at every level feel comfortable in the water and progress to the next level.

We are now offering modified group lessons for all levels with a reduced capacity. All of our group lessons meet Washington State’s COVID-19 reopening requirements. 

For more information on COVID-19 Swim Lesson modifications, please see the tab below “COIVD-19 Modifications for Swim Lessons”.

Please call 206-267-2350 or email astowers@tukwilapool.org for more information.

Private Swim Lessons are available throughout the week. Lessons are scheduled based on the participant’s availability and the availability of an instructor. During private swim lessons, participants work 1-on-1 with an instructor on their personal swimming goals. From learning to be comfortable in the water to perfecting the next stroke, private lessons are a great way to go if you have a challenging schedule or desire individualized instruction.

Private swim lesson cost (includes one student, one instructor) – $40 per half hour class for Tukwila resident / $48 per half hour class for non-residents

Semi-private Swim Lessons are available throughout the week. Lessons are scheduled based on the participants’ availability and the availability of an instructor. During Semi-private swim lessons, two participants work with an instructor on their personal swimming goals. Semi-Private Lessons are great for families that are not able to attend lessons during offered course times, groups of friends that are working on learning a swimming skill or skill set together, or small groups that would like more individualized classes.

Semi-private lesson cost (2 students, one instructor) – $24 each per half hour class per person for Tukwila residents / $30 each per half hour class for non-residents.
