Woman Teaching Child to Swim
Do you or your kids want to learn how to swim?  The Recreation department runs this free program at Greater Lowell Technical High School during the Winter months.


Lessons are Saturdays, for 25 minutes each.

Swim lessons begin at age 5. 

SIGN UP FOR SWIM TESTING.  Lessons are filled at testing and are filled first come first served based during testing times.  Registration only guarantees a testing time, not a swim lesson.

1.) Book a testing time.
2.) Come to testing ready to swim only at your designated time.  Once there, check in with the instructors so that they know you are in attendance.  If you are early you will need to wait until your time.
3.) When your name/number is called your group will enter the pool with the instructor.
4.) The instructor will have you perform some skills to determine your lesson level.
5.) After exiting the pool you can pick a swim time that correlates to your swim level.  Once lessons are filled you will be placed on the wait list in case we have further openings.

Classes are filled first come first serve.  Space is limited.
Session 1 October 23-December 18 (No Class November 27th) 12pm-2pm
Session 2 January 8 - February 19 12pm-2pm
Session 3 March 5-April 9 10am-2pm


All instructors are American Red Cross Certified.
