Summer swim lessons registration reopens Thursday, May 19

Due to the overwhelming number of individuals registering for Juneau Parks & Recreation’s youth summer swim lessons the payment software crashed. Registration was temporarily paused to investigate the technical issues.

Registration will reopen online Thursday, May 19 at noon here. Registrations will not be taken over the phone, in-person, or in advance. Each participant may register for one session only so that as many students as possible can be accommodated.

Please note, a number of individuals were able to register before the payment software crashed and eight classes are full. The classes that are listed online still have space available to register.

For more information or questions, please email Kollin.Monahan@juneau.org or call 586-0839.

Juneau Pools opens registration for summer swim lessons Tuesday, May 17

In response to strong community demand, Juneau Parks & Recreation is offering additional youth swim lessons this summer. A total of 288 slots are available at the Dimond Park Aquatic Center between June 6 and July 28. Lessons are not being offered at Augustus Brown Pool this summer due to planned maintenance closures and staff shortages.

Online registration will open Tuesday, May 17 at 8 a.m. here. Registrations will not be taken over the phone, in-person, or in advance. Each participant may register for one session only so that as many students as possible can be accommodated.

Students will be sorted into classes by age and skill level:

  • Beginner Preschool (ages 3-5) and Youth (ages 5-12) classes are designed for children who are new to the aquatic environment and uncomfortable in the water. Students will learn elementary skills, which will be built upon as they progress through the course. If beginner students do not enter the water and/or participate in the session by the second class, they will be removed from the roster and a full refund will be provided.
  • Intermediate Preschool (ages 3-5) and Youth (ages 5-12) classes are designed for children who can enter and exit the pool independently, submerge their face in water, and travel at least five yards unassisted. If intermediate students do not meet this criteria on the first day, the participant will be removed from the roster and a full refund will be provided.

Group lessons will follow a summer camp model, with classes held every morning Monday – Thursday for two weeks:

Session 1
June 6 – June 16
$64 for 8 classes
Session 2
June 27 – July 7
$56 for 7 classes (no class on July 4)
Session 3
