Oak Brook Park District Swim Lessons
We are happy to announce that swim lessons are returning to the Oak Brook Park District. Private swim lessons will be offered with limited availability due to limited staffing and capacity restrictions. These lessons will be held Monday-Thursday from 11am-2pm, and Saturday-Sunday from 8am-12pm. Each lesson is scheduled for 30 minutes. Our swim instructors have been trained thoroughly to comply with updated COVID-19 safety standards, and will be wearing face shields when teaching in the water. Lessons registered before July 6th will be cancelled and credited to your account. This credit can be used to sign up for future swim lessons and other programs offered by the park district.
Before registering for a swim lesson, review your child’s previous lesson history and the age limitations of class. If you are unsure of their placement, please use our lesson finder to the right or attend any of our free evaluation dates before attending the first class of the session.
Children new to our A Wave and B Wave programs as well those that have not been enrolled in those programs for at least 6 months must attend an evaluation session so they can be properly placed. Evaluations will be on a walk-in basis and taken in the order of arrival. Once begun, the evaluation should take no more than 5 minutes.
See the evaluations page for a complete list of days/times that evaluation sessions are offered.
