Group Swim Lessons

Please note that swim lessons for 2020 are on hold until further notice. The Association is working on a plan to make lessons available to residents this summer. 

Welcome to the Daybreak Summer Swim School. Swimming lessons will be held at the Eastlake Pool. Our group lessons are 30 minutes long, and each session lasts two weeks (six classes). Please reference the chart below to learn more about our swim levels and descriptions. 

Swim registrations can be done online or in person at the Daybreak Community Center. 

Skills Assessment
A skills assessment will take place the first day of class to ensure that swimmers are in the most appropriate level for their success. Swim School staff reserve the right to transfer swimmers to another level regardless of previous levels passed. Correct level placement is in the best interest of individual students and our classes as a whole.

We reserve the right to cancel or combine classes as needed.
Any cancellation of a registered participant will be subject to our refund policy. In the event of a missed class we are unable to provide credits, refunds or make-up. For safety reasons, spectators will be asked to sit in a designated area on the pool deck. Time and dates are subject to change without notice. In the event or a weather-related pool closure, a make-up day will be scheduled.
