Important Information about Swim Lessons…

  • Children who have been introduced to a pool setting and feel somewhat 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 (minus a $5 processing fee) for class withdrawals before the first day of class.  Once a session begins, a maximum of 50% of 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 called in 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.
