The City of Goodyear offers Swim Lessons taught by American Red Cross certified instructors. The program starts at 6 months  of age and requires parent involvement. You can help by providing for your child's safety around water at all times, maintaining enthusiasm and a positive attitude about learning to swim, ensuring your child attends each swim lesson (unless they are sick), discussing and applying water safety rules, and practicing the fundamental skills your child is learning in class. Lessons are conducted over two weeks with eight 30-minute sessions. 

Cost per session: $50 ($60 Non-Resident) 

Class Location: All classes will take place at the Goodyear Community Pool, 430 E. Loma Linda Blvd. Goodyear, 85338

Please review CDC's recommendations on healthy swimming.
