The City of Oviedo is an official provider of American Red Cross Learn-To-Swim lessons.
 

Group lessons are offered March - October, for participants from 6 months to adults.  Each session includes six 30 minute lessons scheduled, five are guaranteed.  All group lessons and registrations are held at Riverside Pool. 


The cost* for each session (all 6 lessons) is:
$42 Oviedo Residents 
$57 Non-Resident Members 
$67 Non-Residents  
*prices are subject to change

Registration is NOT available on-line, you must register in person at Riverside Park.
 
Unless your swimmer has taken lessons with us since March 2013, they must get tested by one of our instructors prior to registration.  The swim test is only required if you are registering for a level higher than Water Tots 1 or Level 1. 
You DO NOT need a swim test for Bubble Babies, Water Tots 1, Level 1 or Adult.
 
SWIM TEST INSTRUCTIONS: To get a swim test - simply go to either of our pools (when they are open) and let the lifeguard know you need a swim test for swim lessons.  This process takes about 5 minutes and doesn't cost anything.  You do not need an appointment.  Please click here for the current pool hours.
