What is Family Swim Night?

Family Swim Night is a once-a-month Friday evening open swim opportunity for all families with at least one actively enrolled swimmer in Learn-to-Swim, Stroke School, or the Parent & Tot program.

Family Swim Night is a great opportunity to make up missed pool time or just get some extra swim time in addition to your child’s four monthly lessons. Plus, it’s a ton of fun for families!

Everyone in your family can attend Family Swim Night. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve missed a class or not. It doesn’t matter whether you RSVP by a certain time or not. All you have to do is just show up. All family members welcome!

While Family Swim Night is not a formal lesson, coaches will be on deck and happy to review the skills being worked on at your child’s level and offer tips on how to maximize your time in the pool with your child. We want to help you appropriately challenge and work with your child in the pool while having a ton of fun together as a family!

Why Family Swim Night?

Kids benefit greatly from fun, unprogrammed pool time outside of lessons with their families. Whether your child is an experienced swimmer who just wants to goof around and play games in the pool with her friends or a more cautious, newer swimmer, free play pool time at Family Swim Night will contribute towards your child’s overall comfort, confidence, and success learning how to swim. We believe Family Swim Night will help cement your child’s love of swimming and create family memories that will last a lifetime!
