Swimming Lessons
Summer Swimming Lessons
We are pleased to offer a comprehensive program designed by the American Red Cross. Classes are offered for all ages and all ability levels. Parent & Child and Preschool Aquatics classes require an adult from the same household in-water with the student to provide support. Learn-to-Swim Levels 1 and 2 now are offered with instructors in the water. Beginning levels focus on water adjustment and introduce basic swimming and water safety skills. More advanced levels concentrate on stroke development, stroke refinement and additional water safety skills. Lessons are 25-minutes long, except for Competitive Swim Lessons, which run 55-minutes. If you do not know which level to register for, please contact us at parks@covingtonwa.gov for a consultation.

Classes run in scheduled sessions:
• 5 days/week (Monday through Friday)
• 2 days/week (Mondays & Wednesdays)
• 2 days/week (Tuesdays & Thursdays)
• 1 day/week (Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays)

Water exercise classes are great aerobic and cardiovascular workouts that will help you increase your cardiovascular endurance, improve your heart rate, and help lower cholesterol and blood pressure.

WaterX Shallow Aerobics - A low-impact aerobics and cardiovascular workout in the shallow-end of the pool. These classes emphasize stretching, developing muscular strength, and developing range of motion. 

WaterX Deep Aerobics - These classes in the deep-end of the pool give one of the greatest aerobic and toning workouts available with no impact to the body's joints! These specialized aerobics and cardiovascular workouts provide muscular conditioning and excellent core strengthening.
