Swim Lessons

Summer swim lessons with Arlington Aquatics will look a bit different this summer.

The City of Arlington is only offering private lessons this summer season. Arlington Aquatics will offer small group/semi-private lessons upon request for swimmers ages 2 & above. Small group/semi-private lessons can be booked when the students are close together in skill level from the same household.

Arlington Aquatics will also be offering parent/child classes in two levels: Starfish (6 months to 35 months) and Toddler Swim (3 years old). Both classes will consist of the parent in the water with the student while the instructor gives guidance from the pool deck, social distancing between families will be adhered to.

“We are excited to offer swimming lessons this season with an emphasis on water safety skills to keep all of our participants safe near, on, and around the water,” said Arlington Aquatics Manager Maria Campbell.

Lessons are in the mornings at Bad Konigshofen and Allen Bolden from Monday through Thursday, in the evenings at Woodland West and Allen Bolden Monday through Thursday, and in the evenings Monday only or Tuesday/Thursday and weekends at the Hugh Smith Indoor Pool. You can register for swim lessons, online at, at any of our centers as well as the Parks Admin Building.

A.M. lessons are available from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

P.M. lessons are available from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Weekends are available from Sat (9 a.m.-1 p.m.) and Sun (12 p.m.-3 p.m.)—Private lessons are 4 classes for 25 minutes, $100 (Semi private lessons are $75/child). Group classes (parent/child 1 & 2) are 8 classes for 25 minutes and $60.

Because of COVID-19, Arlington Aquatics has reduced lesson numbers, is regularly screening employees, and has implemented a stringent cleaning regiment.

At this time, we are unsure about our official summer schedule but we will provide updates to the community as changes and approvals are made.

Parks staff is working closely with the Arlington Fire Department to monitor and implement a reasonable reopening timeline that complies with Gov. Abbott’s latest executive orders, the City’s Roadmap to Reopen and Recover plan and social distancing recommendations from local health officials and the CDC.
