Swimming Lessons General Information

The City of Tempe Community Services Department provides a progressive program for students who wish to learn or improve their swimming skills. This program is certified by the Starfish Aquatics Institute. If you have concerns regarding your child's progress or ability level, please discuss them with the instructor or pool manager.

Fees for each class must be paid at the time of registration.

A student may register for a maximum of one (1) Learn-to-Swim class at a time using any of the registration procedures below. A student may also register for special classes in addition to a swimming class.

Students may register for additional Learn-to-Swim classes midway through the lesson. At the end of the session, each student will be provided a skill progress sheet for the class in which he/she is currently participating and information on the next appropriate class.

Current students will only be permitted to register for the next level of class by providing their skill progress sheet with their registration form.

All pre-registration activities are subject to cancellation prior to start date if the minimum registration is not met.
