If your child can swim but needs work on basic stroke or treading water, please consult with one of our head lifeguards for guidance on what level to sign them up for. As of right now swim lesson ratios are 5:1 student to instructor ratio. Each session is 5 days a week for two weeks consecutive weeks.

Registration Process: Swim Lesson Sign-ups will take place at 6 pm the Thursday before each session begins for Fircrest Residents. Non-Residents may register at 6 pm the Friday before each session begins.  Online registration only; spots are limited.

  • Resident $47 per session
  • Non-Resident $63 per session
  • Swim lessons are available for both residents/nonresidents. However, residents will receive a 24-hour resident-only sign-up period. All swimmers must register for lessons using RecDesk. Each swimmer must have an approved RecDesk household account before registering or will be subject to a 48-hour approval period starting at the time of account creation. For liability and insurance purposes, it is important that the swimmer’s parent or guardian on the household account completes registration for their swimmer. Unfortunately, RecDesk does not have an option to register multiple swimmers at the same time for purposes of convenience. Each swimmer is linked to an individual registration and must register under their appropriate RecDesk household account.
  • Swimmers must be age 4 & older and 32″ tall at the top of the shoulder. (At this time, we are exploring the possibility of an adult & child swim class for kids under age 4) Please email our Parks & Recreation Director if that is something you would like to see in the future. jgrover@cityoffircrest.net 
  • Swimmers will advance through the levels according to the City of Fircrest Skill Progression Sheets.
  • In the event that the pool must shut down, makeup lessons will not be given.

Swim Team: (FULL)
The Fircrest Amateur Swim Team (FAST) is a developmental swim program that offers a low-pressure, fun swim program for aspiring swimmers. To qualify for FAST Your child needs to be able to swim 25 yards of Freestyle and 25 yards Backstroke to be considered for the team. On the first day, we will test all swimmers to place them in the appropriate group and will let you know at that time if the swim team is the right fit for your child. If your child is not quite ready for FAST our swim team coaches will recommend a swim lesson level that is appropriate for your child to learn the skills required to eventually join the swim team. Online registration is required; spots are limited.
