Swimming Lessons

Group Swim Lesson


We offer swimming lessons four times per year, for kids aged four months and older. Our highly trained and certified instructors teach all swimming lessons.

Not sure which level to register your child in? We can help! Come to any public swim and a certified instructor will assess your child's swimming level and suggest an appropriate program. For more information on having your child screened, please contact one of our aquatic facilities.

We offer swimming lessons at the following three indoor facilities:

Group lessons

Red Cross swim preschool and swim kids levels one to four are 30 minutes long. Red Cross swim kids levels five to 10 are 45 minutes long. 

For fees and other information, see the Recreation and Leisure Guide or visit to register.

Private and semi-private lessons

We offer private and semi-private lessons in five and 10-week blocks. Private lessons have a ratio of 1:1 and semi-private 2:1. All lessons are 30 minutes long.

You can register for 10-week private lessons online or in person. All other lessons can only be registered for in person at the appropriate facility.

For fees and other information, see the Recreation and Leisure Guide or visit to register.

Do you want to increase your comfort in the water? Would you like to learn new strokes? Clarington offers both Learn to Swim and Swim Strokes and Fitness classes for all ages and swimming abilities. Adult lessons take place during the evening outside of public swimming hours. Lessons are 45 minutes long.
