Swim Lessons General Info

The Aquatics Center at the Macomb Township Recreation Center offers a variety of swim lesson classes that are available for online registration such as Preschool Swim Lessons, Learn-to-Swim, and Adult & Private Swim Lessons. Before you can register online for any classes, you must call the Recreation Center for your household I.D. and password. Don’t forget your swim test if you are new to the program. Placing your child in the wrong level may result in being cancelled from the class.

Swim Testing

Anyone NEW to our program, wishing to enroll in Levels 1 – 4 must first participate in a REQUIRED swim test to ensure correct placement in lessons. Children should come prepared to swim. Preschool swim lessons do not require a swim test. Please refer to the class descriptions when enrolling your child in a preschool lesson.

SWIM TESTS will be conducted Monday – Friday, 6:00 - 8:00pm at the Macomb Township Recreation Center. No appointment necessary.

SPECIAL NOTE:  Participants may be registered for only one section of swim lessons at a time. Registering for consecutive sections may result in the participant being enrolled in an inappropriate level for a later section and cancellation may be required. Enrolling in the incorrect level may also result in enrollment cancellation.

Make-Up Swim Lessons

There will be no MAKE-UP classes or refunds for classes that participants are unable to attend. If the pool is closed due to weather or maintenance, causing classes to be cancelled, a make-up class would occur on the next day in the sequence of classes after the last scheduled class date.

Use of the Facility

Participants will be allowed into the locker room facility NO SOONER THAN 15 MINUTES prior to the start of your swim lesson.  Participants will be allowed in the water during their swim lesson only.  Please visit the Aquatics Center main page for times the pool is available for open swim.
