Learn a lifetime leisure skill while having fun in the water this summer!

Registration is underway for Rockford Park District swimming lessons for children ages 6 months to 17 years, and adults ages 18 and older. Two-week weekday sessions for ages 6 months-age 17 are offered through mid-August.

Lessons meet for eight 45-minute classes (30-minute classes for tots ages 5 and younger), offered Monday-Thursday, both in the morning and the evening. Adult lessons for ages 17 and older are offered all summer in evening sessions at Alpine Pool.
