Backyard Pool Swim Lesson Requirements:

A parent/guardian must be present at poolside for the duration of the lesson.

Lessons take place in your own home pool. If you do not have a home pool, you may wish to partner with someone who does. Pool must be clean and chemically balanced. If instructor feels the pool is not safe to hold the lesson, they have the right not to hold the lesson until any safety concern is corrected.

Children must be at least 3 (and potty trained) through 14 years of age. Group lesson participants (limit 4) must be of similar age and abilities. For more than four children, back-to-back lessons can be scheduled. To inquire about adult backyard pool swim lessons contact Aquatics Director, Ed Soder.

Pool owners must have home insurance covering the pool. A copy of the home insurance must be sent to the Lakeland Hills Family YMCA before a lesson package can be scheduled.
