Teton Valley Aquatics Summer Swim Lessons
We’re excited to be offering beginning swim lessons again to Teton Valley via our Summer Pool Program in the Driggs City Park! This program could not occur without support from the City of Driggs. Lessons are available for children ages 6 months and up who have limited to no swimming or water safety skills.
Classes will be two days/week for 3 weeks on either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. Session 1 is from June 20th-July 8th, July 4th classes will be held on Friday July 8th. Session 2 is from July 11th-July 28th. Session 3 is from August 1st-August 18th.
Each class is $45. Please select this option unless you need assistance. If the class is full, please register for the waitlist in case spots open up. If a spot opens up (or the scholarship spot is not used by April 30th), we will add you to the class.
If you would like a scholarship for your child, please select the scholarship rate of $10 per class. If the class is full and you would like to register for one of the held scholarship spots, please register on the waitlist and then email us to request the spot.
Unfortunately, due to the size of the pool and limited local access to beginner classes, we are not able to teach mid to upper level swim lessons. If your child is too advanced for our classes, please look into programs in Jackson, Rexburg, and Idaho Falls as well as consider supporting Teton Valley Aquatics’ efforts to build a year-round aquatic facility in Teton Valley so our community will have local access to these programs in the future.
Baby & Me Classes

These classes are for younger children and require a parent/guardian to be in the pool with the swimmer taking the lesson. Children are required to wear a swim diaper if they are not potty trained.
