The 10-week program is $665, which includes a soak for each participating child.

IMPORTANT: Before registering for summer lessons at Astoria, please carefully review the requirements for each group. This ensures your child is accurately placed and can maximize their progress in swim lessons.

INTRODUCTORY SWIM LESSONS 

Introductory classes are tailored for swimmers who are ready to learn independently in a group setting without parental assistance. These sessions focus on crucial skills such as retrieving toys underwater, mastering tummy/back floats, kicking with straight legs, blowing bubbles, and fostering water confidence. Each class accommodates a maximum of four participants.

  • For children who are comfortable going underwater
  • Must be 3.0 to 4.25 years old
  • Soak for the 9a-11a session

Fry: Introductory 1     10a-10:30a

  • For children who are timid or fearful of going underwater 
  • Must be 3.0 to 5.0 years old
  • Soak for the 9a-11a session

 

PARENT AND TOT SWIM LESSONS 

These classes are designed for young swimmers accompanied by their parents in the pool. They focus on skills such as submersion, assisted back floats, water acclimation, and retrieving toys underwater. Each class is limited to six pairs, consisting of a parent/guardian and child.

Otters and Pups     10:30a- 11a

  • Must be 2.0 to 3.5 years old
  • Includes soak for pair: 11:15a-1:15p session

More important details: 

Small-group instruction is a priority, so space is limited. A full payment of $665 is required at registration.

No lessons on July 4th, July 23rd, and July 25th. 

-Parents of Tadpoles and Fry: Your child’s lessons include a complimentary soak for the 9 a.m.- 11 a.m. session. Any accompanying individuals for that session must purchase a hot spring ticket in advance by making a reservation here.

-Bri brings over 20 years of experience teaching swimming lessons to Astoria. Growing up in a small town in southern Idaho, she began teaching swimming lessons in exchange for a pool pass and unlimited slushies. Continuing her passion through college at Idaho State University, Bri taught both youth and college students. She has been in the valley for 11 years and enjoys golfing, swimming, and camping. Bri’s greatest joy comes from working with youth, witnessing the smiles on their faces when they master a new skill. She eagerly anticipates her second season at Astoria.
