Learn to Swim classes offered through City of Longview Parks and Recreation are now enrolling students. The classes are located at Longview Swim Center and Ingram Pool and are available for ages 6 months through adult.  

“Each summer we hear devastating news of a child drowning in a swimming pool, lake or river,” said Longview Parks and Recreation Director Scott Caron.  “The Learn to Swim lessons provide a great way to learn to swim and could one day save a child’s life.”

Group Lessons
Offered for ages 6 months-adults. Lessons are held Monday-Thursday for 2 weeks at both Longview Swim Center and Ingram Pool. Infant & Toddler (ITAP) and Preschool Level 1 (PAP1) classes are 35 minutes each; all other classes are 45 minutes each. LSC has a maximum of 8 students for Preschool and Level 1 classes, and a maximum of 10 students for all other classes. Ingram pool has a maximum of 8 students for all classes.

Semi-Private Lessons
Designed for swimmers in need of a smaller instructor/student ratio. Each class will have at least 2 students, but no more than 3. Classes are 45 minutes each, Monday-Thursday. Semi-Privates are available at both Ingram Pool and Longview Swim Center. Registration will be on a first come, first served basis.

Private Lessons
These lessons offer 1-on-1 instruction starting at Preschool Level 2 (PAP2) and are 45 minutes long. They can be scheduled in place of a semi-private lesson (by buying out the semi-private). Private lessons not scheduled in place of a semi-private are scheduled in the order in which participants join a wait list and are based on instructor availability.
