Students learn basic water safety skills and beginner to intermediate swimming skills.

Shark classes are offered in levels 1, 2, 3 and 4 and are designed for children ages 6years – 13 years of age. Shark students participate in a reduced group setting with a parent or guardian from the same household in the water guiding the child as the Instructor teaches from the afar to ensure social distancing. Students learn basic water safety skills and beginner to intermediate swimming skills.

Super Strokes is designed to improve the skills learned in shark level courses and provide students with the skills needed to enjoy swimming as a lifelong sport. Students will also learn advanced water safety skills. 

Pre-Comp is designed for those who have passed Super Strokes and want to prepare for competitive team participation.

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

To register for Private or Semi-private Lessons, call (206)-267-2350 or email info@tukwilapool.org

Designed for children 6 month to 3 years of age, this class will help your tot become comfortable in the water and teach them basic swimming skills. Students are welcome to attend class with one or both parents, a grandparent, aunt, uncle or other adult friend. Students preform best when the adult that participates in class with them is consistently the same individual. No more than two adults per student in each class.
