During the summer, swim lessons are available weekdays at Tufts Outdoor Pool, located at Tufts Park. Swim levels are divided into three groups: Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced. Sign your child up for the level you think is most appropriate and on the first lesson, our instructors will evaluate the children and put them into the appropriate level.
Beginners-This class is for children who are fearful of the water or have no experience. In this class, your child will learn how to put their face in the water, kick on their front, and float.
Intermediate- In this class, your child should be comfortable being in the pool and can put their face in the water. They should be able to float on their front independently and kick on their front without instructor support but with a flotation aid.
Advanced- Your child should be able to swim about 15 yards (width of the Main Pool) on their front independently and without a flotation aid.
