Arne Hanna Aquatic Swim Lessons

​​​​Join us to learn the basics, build confidence, or refine your technique. Our trained instructors are looking forward to working with you to meet your swimming goals and have fun while doing it!

Swim lesson instructors are returning to in-water instruction. Parents are no longer required to be in the water for Preschool or Youth lessons, only for Parent and Child classes. Student maximums have increased too! Parent and child classes have expanded to five parent/child pairs. All Preschool swim lessons and Youth Levels 1-3 have four students max. Youth levels 4-6 have a max of five students now.


Register for lessons by phone at (360) 778-7665 or online. Registration will occur the Monday before each session’s start date beginning at 8:00 am. If the Monday is a holiday, registration will open on Tuesday. Please refer to the lesson schedule for the official registration start date. Students can register for only one lesson per session.
