We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Thursday, November 3, 2016.
Prerequisite: All participants must be evaluated by pool staff prior to registration. There is no prerequisite for this class. It is designed for children with little or no experience in the water. Returning participants need to contact pool staff to ensure the correct prerequisite skills are listed on their SDRecConnect account. Otherwise, ActiveNet will not allow you to register for any upper level lessons. If this is your first time registering for lessons with the City of San Diego you will need to contact pool staff to schedule a swim assessment and if needed, help create an SDRecConnect account.
