Swim lessons are normally offered via privates or semi-privates only during summer quarter. However, due to the closure of the Cheney Outdoor Pool, group lessons were also offered this summer. We may be doing them again next summer as well. Register for lessons in person, or by calling 509-329-6923 or 359-4252. You can also email the Aquatic Center Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org to request lessons. We offer both private and group lessons throughout the school year.
