Learn to Swim in Westerville

Summer swim lesson information for JC Pool is coming soon. See below for our remaining spring session dates.

If you are looking for swim lessons for your child, we encourage you to secure a spot on our waitlist by using the buttons above or viewing the table of available lessons at the bottom of this page! Simply sign up for the current month's wait list, as those lists will roll from month to month. We will be determining how many additional swimmers we can safely accommodate from our wait list for our spring sessions soon. Stay tuned!

Our first priority in teaching swimming is to make everyone safe in and around the water. Second, swimming provides for one of the best forms of fitness for all ages. And, third, by becoming comfortable around the water and skilled in basic swimming techniques, one finds the aquatic world is filled with a multitude of recreational activities that add to the overall enjoyment of life.

COVID-19 Restrictions: We are currently limiting our class ratios to ensure the safety of our swimmers and staff. We ask that families limit the number of additional family members that attend to watch the lessons so that we can minimize the number of people on the pool deck. Swimmers should be accompanied by only one adult and please avoid bringing additional siblings if possible. All parents/swimmers are expected to wear masks into the facility, however masks are not to be worn while in the pool. If the local COVID-19 restrictions lighten, increased class sizes will be considered at that time. We will communicate, in advance, any changes in structure to all registered families.

Group lesson Format for 2020-21

School Year Group Lesson Registration Process

Interested families will register to a waitlist using our Jackrabbit class management platform. We will maintain that waitlist through the school year and use the following prioritization for acceptance to the program: Westerville Aquatic Club (WAC) families will receive first priority registration, followed by returning SwimAmerica families (from the 2019-20 School Year or later), and finally new families. We expect that spots will be extremely limited initially, with hopes that we will be able to increase the class sizes as the school year progresses.


Group Lesson Schedule

The following will be the expected schedule for lessons throughout the year. Additional days/times will be added if pool/staff availability allows.

Saturdays @ JC Pool: 12:20 PM and 1:00PM

Sundays @ Oakstone Pool: 1:30PM and 2:10PM

All classes will be 30 minutes.
