The City of Bridgeport will once again be offering swimming lessons. The Swim School will offer three two week sessions during June and July. Each Session will consist of eight 30-minute classes.
Classes run Tuesday-Friday mornings for two weeks.
Enrollment will be accepted at the Bridgeport City Hall, 900 Thompson Street, until May 25. After May 25th, enrollment will occur at the Bridgeport City Pool. Space is limited. All classes are subject to charge.
Students may be moved from one level to another to better their needs. Repetition is the key to learning. Safety skills will be introduced and reaffirmed in each class.
Class fees are non-refundable. Classes canceled due to weather will be rescheduled whenever possible. If there is inclement weather, please call the pool to see if we have cancelled classes for that day. After the class has started, no refund, rescheduling of sessions, or pro-rated fees will be allowed.
