Adult Lessons

Discover Swimming

Registration is available in person at the Redmond Pool!


Discover swimming is an adult lesson program for students ages 15+.  The cost is $75 for four 1-hour classes, scheduled for four consecutive weeks.

DS Level 1- This class is designed for the very novice swimmer with little to no swimming experience, as well as anyone looking to conquer their fears of water. In this level you will be focusing on getting comfortable in the water, learning to float, treading water, and basic self-rescue techniques.

DS Level 2- This class is designed for swimmers who can move around in the pool but have little to no swimming experience. If you are comfortable in the water and can manage short swims this is the class for you. In this class we will be focusing on the fundamentals of swimming--body position, kick, pull, rotation, and side breathing. Swimmers should be able to kick comfortably on their stomach, for at least 20 ft, in order to participate in this class.

DS Level 3- This class is designed for swimmers who have the basics of swimming freestyle or crawl stroke and need a little refinement.  In this class we will be working on the details of catch, pull, recovery, kick, rotation, side breathing, and introduction into turns. Swimmers should be able to swim crawlstroke(freestyle) at least 25 yards without stopping, in order to participate in this class.

DS Level 4- This class is designed to continue to work on freestyle, but also introduce you to the fundamentals for backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. Swimmers should be able to swim at least 100 yards consecutively in deep water, in order to participate in this class.


Upon registration students may opt to purchase a set of cap and goggles for $10 (Redmond Only). We recommend students also take advantage of our Discover Swimming student discount on a 10-visit lap swim pass. We offer DS students 25% off the lap swim punch pass in order to encourage students to practice their skills between classes each week.
