Samford Pool Opens Saturday, May 25

Swim Lesson Registration Continues

Summer will be here soon and the Auburn City Pool will soon be open to the public. We have plenty of surprises in store for our patrons during the upcoming pool season at Samford Pool.

Our first big surprise involves swim lessons! According the National Recreation and Park Association, More than 9 in 10 Americans (95 percent) believe it is important for children to learn how to swim at an early age. This is why Auburn Parks and Recreation is offering a wide variety of swim lesson opportunities this year ONLY at Samford Pool. We will offer smaller class sizes for swim lessons so your children receive more attention one – on –one and the best swim lessons as possible.

We are also introducing a new class “Advanced Guppies” in our swim lesson curriculum. This class will be available for children ages 5 and 6 who have taken our Guppies class previously, but aren’t quite yet ready to move up. Swim lessons are a great opportunity to get your child more comfortable in the water so they can swim safely and confidently!

Lastly, we have added two extra sessions, so everyone has the opportunity to participate in swim lessons this year!

Auburn City Pools swim lessons are available for students ages 6 months through adulthood and will be held in six sessions this summer:

Registration is open for the following sessions this summer:
Session III: June 3-13
Session IV: June 17-27
Session V: July 1-3
Session VI: July 8-18
