Instructional programs open for summer registration as of June 5, 2020, have been modified due to COVID-19 to accommodate social distancing. Class sizes have been reduced and physical distancing will be in place. Beginner level classes will require an adult 16 years or older to be in the water during the lesson to assist their swimmer. In addition to our parent-assisted offerings, modified classes requiring a parent/caregiver are Shrimps, Tadpoles, Sea Otter and Sea Horse.
The City of Tempe provides a variety of swim instruction programming designed to accommodate individuals of all ages and skill levels. Classes are available for children as young as eight months, and instruction continues through age 15.
