About the Event

Ms. Louise Mulvey will be offering swimming lessons this summer to NSP pool members. Lessons will be held on Tuesdays in July: 7/9, 7/16, 7/23, 7/30.

Lessons consist of four 30-minute lessons scheduled between 5:00 and 6:30 pm. Weather make-up day will be the same Friday of the week with the weather cancellation. Unfortunately we cannot offer make-up sessions for schedule conflicts.

The cost will be $40.00 per student. An adult must stay at the pool with the swimmer during the lesson. Please read the level descriptions below and register your child for the most appropriate class based on their swimming experience. There will be a maximum of 6 students per class.

*Level 1 class is currently full. Please email us at northsevernaparkcommunity@gmail.com if you would like to join the waitlist. Based on interest, we may look into adding a third class.
