Swimming Lessons for Children

One of the best ways for children to become strong swimmers is through Swim Team, which is an all-around competitive program for kids ages 4 to 18. In our metro area, the Atlanta Swim Association governs the swim team programs. At Kingsley, our team is the Kingsley Dolphins Swim Team, and they have brought home many trophies and personal best records for many years. If you are interested in joining the Kingsley Swim team and taking individual or group lessons, please see our dedicated website here.  

Outside of Swim Team, the club does not offer swimming lessons for members; however, a few of our swim team coaches are available for private lessons as are two certified adult instructors who are familiar with Kingsley. Please note that private swimming lessons are allowed at the Kingsley pool but must be taken during regular pool hours. For a listing of pool hours, please see here.

If you are interested in lessons outside of swim team for your child, please refer to the information below and contact the coach or instructor directly. They will let you know their availability and their cost for lessons. So that the coaches and instructors can get some initial information about your child’s swimming ability, we ask that you complete this form and send it to your coach or instructor prior to the first lesson.
