Beginning Swim Lessons (M-T-TH-F, 2-week sessions)

Wildwood Manor Pool is happy to continue offering beginning swim lessons by Tollefson Swimming. Swim lessons will be open to swimmers of all abilities that can not yet swim freestyle and backstroke for 25 meters (1 length of the pool). All participants must be fully potty-trained (water diapers are not allowed in the main pool) and comfortable separating from their parents.

Lessons will run in two week, eight day, 30 minutes sessions (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday), with the option of morning (11 or 11:30am) or afternoon (3 or 3:30pm) lessons. Classes will be limited to 3 students per instructor. Each session will cost $80 and swimmers can register at the links below for multiple 2-week sessions.

  • Session 1:   June 19 – June 30
  • Session 2:   July 03 – July 14 (no class 7/4)
  • Session 3:   July 17 – July 28

Swimmers will be separated into three basic levels:

  • Beginning (no breathing and no head in the water);
  • Mid-level (can blow bubbles, put face in water and streamline); and
  • Advanced (comfortable in water, some dog paddle, float half-streamline and beginnings of strokes in free and back).

Instructor evaluations to determine proper swimmer level placement will take place the previous Friday and Saturday respectively. Please RSVP at the following links (when available):

  • For Session 1:  Friday, June 16 (from 3-4pm) and Saturday, June 17 (from 12-1pm);

Youth Stroke Lessons – (M-T-TH-F, afternoons only)

This is a class for young swimmers in which the beginning swim lessons are no longer suitable. Students will know how to swim but would like to work on correct stroke development for the 4 competitive strokes: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. This class will focus on proper stroke technique. Classes will be limited to 4 students per instructor. This is a deck-instructed class – instructor will not be in the water with the students.

Classes will be offered at 3 or 3:30pm, and will meet for 30 minutes on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday for two consecutive weeks (8 lessons per session). Each session will cost $80 and swimmers can sign up for multiple sessions.

  • Session 1:   June 19 – June 30
  • Session 2:   July 03 – 14 (no class 7/4)
  • Session 3:   July 17 – July 28

*Due to the popularity of these lessons and the limited space available, we have had to implement a cancellation policy. If a session is full, cancellations for enrolled students must be received in by email (programs@wildwoodpool.com) 48 hours before the first day of class (Friday – June 16, June 30 or July 14) to receive a full refund. Cancellations less than 48 hours before the start of the session will be subject to a $15 administration fee. No refunds will be given after the session has started. Please be sure to withdraw if your child will not be taking the class so that another member can enroll their child. Thank you for your cooperation!
