General Pool Admission

Program Fees


Lessons are offered year-round for $45 for 8 lessons for City of Miami residents and $65 for 8 lessons for non-City of Miami residents. (Cashier's check or money order payable to City of Miami ONLY)

There are different levels for learn-to-swim to allow your child to start with basic skills and then move on to stroke technique and proper swim form. Each level they graduate from makes them a stronger swimmer. Our instructors are American Red Cross certified and enjoy the experience of teaching children how to be safe in and near the water. Please refer to the list of pools below and contact your nearest pool to find out more about their Learn-To-Swim classes.

Private lessons are also available at all year-round sites for $160.
