Summer Swim Lessons

Limited Space - Sign Up Early

Red Cross certified lifeguards who are also trained in C.P.R. give our swim lessons. Each session offers three levels of lessons to accommodate your child's needs. If uncertain which level to register your child for the instructors will evaluate him/her at the first session and place them in the appropriate group.


The initial 2-week session of swim lessons costs $75 per child. Subsequent sessions are $35 each. For Attleboro residents this initial fee includes a season's pass to all four pools. For Massachusetts residents the initial fee includes a season's pass to the Spatcher Pool. Out of state residents are not eligible for swim lessons.

Family Season Pass

If you register a child for swim lessons and are purchasing a family season's pass you may credit $40 of each child's initial swim lesson fee toward your family swim pass.

Season Passes

Seasons passes will be distributed at the pool when you arrive for lessons. If you wish to go to swim prior to your lesson starting let the gate person know you have signed up for lessons and they will distribute your season's pass.


We anticipate group lessons to be offered at our three city-owned swimming pools and the state owned Spatcher Pool on North Avenue. When filling out the registration form please note which pool you plan on attending:
  • B= Briggs
  • L=Liddell
  • S= Spatcher
  • T= Tilda B. Stone (Dodgeville)


Designed for a child's introduction to the pool, children will learn basic beginning skills for floating, swimming and safety. Water adjustment is introduced using fun games and songs. Buoyancy and breath control will be taught. Focus on safety and pool rules. Bubbles are welcome at these levels.
