Swim Lesson Policy

Thank you for enrolling in swimming lessons with us at the Oak Brook Park District. We hope that you and your family have a positive experience. Please take a moment and review our swim lesson expectations to help us provide you with a great swimming experience.

  • Please check in for every swim class at the pool desk.
  • Please refrain from allowing your child to enter the water before their lesson. Children not registered in a swim class are not allowed in the pool.
  • Parents/guardians must remain in the Aquatic Center by the pool deck chairs throughout the child's swimming lesson if any children are under 12 years old.
  • Please use designated seating in or near the concessions area to view swimming lessons. We prohibit parents from sitting along the back west wall of the facility.
  • Please do not change your child on the pool deck.
  • Any child who is not yet potty-trained must wear a swim diaper under their swimsuit. 
  • Please take a moment at the end of the session to complete our swim lessons survey in your email.
  • All new students require proper evaluation. Returning students must register according to the placement on their report card. If a child is registered for an incorrect class without an evaluation or report card designation, we will refund the class fee and cancel the registration if we are not able to accommodate the student in the proper level. We will not compromise class size to accommodate improperly registered students.

Make-Up Policy

  • We need advanced notice via email to swimlesson@obparks.org if a lesson will be missed.
  • One [1] make-up is allowed per session. The make-up must be completed during the current session and before the last week of the session, absolutely no exceptions.
  • Please speak to the lesson supervisor for group make-up times as soon as possible, and private lesson makeups will be arranged directly with the instructor.
  • Make-up lessons are not permitted for a forgotten lesson or a lesson that has already taken place before we receive notification. 
  • No make-ups are allowed in the final week of class. The final week of class is dedicated to evaluations for report card purposes and to notate progress that has been made throughout the session
  • We will not give make-ups or prorate for late registrations.
  • Make-ups will only be given to the child who has missed their registered lesson.
