Swimming Lessons

Let's Swim

The goal of our swim lessons is to teach participants to be safe when they are in, on, and around the water. Children are encouraged to try new skills, but they are never forced to complete tasks they are not ready to do. We believe that with patience, positive encouragement and frequent repetition of skills, your child will have a happy and successful swimming experience.

Please note: We can only offer swim lessons to members of pools or communities that are managed by Greater Nashville Pool Management. The minimum age to participate is 3.

Class Descriptions

If you're unsure of which class to choose, please speak with the Pool Manager at your pool.

Sea Horse

This class is for children who are new to swim lessons. Students learn basic water safety and developing a comfort level in the water. It teaches water orientation, body submersion, beginner floating, and beginner arm and leg movements.


This class is for children who are comfortable in the water and can swim at least six feet independently. It focuses on teaching students to float and recover to a standing position on both the front and back without assistance, combining the arm and leg movements for freestyle and backstroke and underwater swimming.

Marlins (Primary Skills)

This class is for children who are learning to swim the primary strokes without assistance and who can swim ten yards of both freestyle and backstroke.
