Please read the options carefully to ensure you are signing up for the correct swim level, session, and time.
Stoughton Recreation offers swim lessons for children and adults beginning at the age of 3 years old. Led by our staff of highly trained lifeguards and water safety instructors, children and adults will learn basic strokes through dynamic and informational practices while having fun. Lessons are 45 minutes for school-age children and adults, and 30 minutes for pre-school age. A parent or guardian must be present at the time of swim lessons. No child will be allowed to participate if a parent or guardian is not with them on the beach and following the Ames Pond policies and procedures. This is for your safety. Each swim lesson registration comes with a season pass to the Ames Pond Beachfront.
Lessons take place Monday through Friday at 10AM and 11AM depending on your child's swim level. Be sure you are selecting lessons based on your child's swim level.
