Swim Lessons

Make a Splash

Water provides plenty of activities for all ages, but it's important to practice water safety, especially when living in a coastal community, such as St. Petersburg.

According to the Florida Department of Health, "Florida leads the country in drowning deaths of children ages 1-4 years."

Learning to swim is an important factor in practicing water safety. We offer several swim lessons for all ages and skill levels throughout the year.

Registration for select swim lessons begin August 31 at Walter Fuller Pool. See details below for class types and times.

  • Instructors: Lessons are taught by Water Safety Instructors certified by the American Red Cross.
