Please review the Swim Lesson Level Descriptions to the right before registering your child.

Swim Lesson Registration

Swim lessons are held at: Brighton Recreation Center, 555 North 11th Avenue

Please review our refund policy (below) before purchasing your swim lessons.

• All group swim classes must have at least three registrants. Classes that do not reach the minimum enrollment of three participants are subject to either cancellation or combination with similar-level students on waitlists.

• Registration deadline for all lessons is five business days before each session begins. You will not receive a refund after this time has passed.

• Class maximums are set for quality and safety reasons.

• Fees must be paid at time of registration.

*Note: A parent or legal guardian may only register their child(ren) under age 18.

Swim Lesson Quick Tips

• There is no sure way to predict how quickly your child will progress. It is not unusual for students to repeat levels until they are proficient and can perform swim skills consistently. It does not benefit your child to enroll them in a level they are not prepared for, and if your child cannot be safely incorporated into a level that is too advanced for them, your child will be unenrolled.

• Pollywogs are similar to Level One while Guppies are similar to Level Two. Minnow is an advanced pre-school level that incorporates skills from both of Level Two and Level Three. The reason for the preschool separation is to accommodate developmental differences in learning for different age groups.

• If you want your child to be safe around the water, sign them up for swim lessons now!

• Contact the Assistant Aquatics Coordinator at 303-655-2213 with any questions regarding your child's swim level placement including future registration.
