  • IMPORTANT: Dates & times for all activities are subject to change. Some activities may be combined due to low enrollment. In the event the pool has to be shut down for any reason, a water safety discussion will be scheduled for that day since that is included in our swimming lessons curriculum. No refunds will be given if you register for any swim lessons class and/or if your child does not participate or in inclement weather.
  • The Seven Hills Community Recreation Department swim program is specifically designed to give students a positive learning experience. We teach aquatic and safety skills in a logical progression, with the objective being swimming pool safety in, on and around the water. These classes are the most comprehensive and effective classes of its kind available anywhere! Please be patient, as children progress each at their own level.
  • Rules for Registration & Classes:
    • There will be NO OPEN SWIM during our Learn To Swim Classes.
    • This is for the safety of our students and instructors.
    • Please dress children in the Locker Rooms - not on the Pool Deck - and have them carry their towel to class (parents are asked to walk their child to the pool area). If you will be helping your children in the Locker Rooms after class, please meet them near the Locker Room doors. To assist a child of the opposite gender age 3 or older, we ask that you use the Family Changing Rooms provided.
    • Parents must stay in the chairs around the perimeter of the Pool or behind the glass doors in the Gathering Room. In the event of an emergency, our lifeguards need quick access to the pool. If parents stand around the pool during class, they create an obstacle for our lifeguards. Also, some students may find it difficult to concentrate with Mom or Dad standing near the edge.
    • Children will receive an evaluation on the last day of class. This evaluation will inform you of where your child should be placed for the upcoming session. At registration, please follow the suggested level on the previous report card to ensure proper placement.
    • Due to the size of classes, we will only be offering make-up classes if the pool is closed due to weather or if it is the facility's fault that class is cancelled.
    • Registration for class closes 24-hours prior to the class start date. A $10 late fee will be applied for those who do not abide.
    • ****It is our responsibility to provide a safe and positive learning experience for your child. We thank you for your cooperation in following these guidelines.
