Swim Lessons & Programs

All aquatic and swim programs are canceled for the 2020 season due to COVID-19. We look forward to swimming with you again in 2021.


Group Outdoor Swim Lessons

Swimming is one of those life skills everyone should have. Sunset Pool Swim Academy provides a positive, fun-filled opportunity to prepare kids for a lifetime of safe water fun. Classes take place outdoors at Sunset Pool in June and July.

Parent/Tot Water Exploration | 9-36 months

This program allows infants to explore and become comfortable in the water with a parent right by their side! Instructors will guide you and your child through activities that promote water safety and swimming readiness. We will cover skills including floating (with assistance) and blowing bubbles. Parents will also learn how to prevent/manage an aquatic emergency and basic CPR. 

Preschool Learn to Swim | Ages 3-5

This class covers swimming skills and water safety knowledge in a logical progression. Children will learn and work on skills such as getting their face/head wet, floating, gliding, and combined arm and leg action on front and back. Our instructors will evaluate participants on the first day of class and place them into the appropriate level.

Youth Learn to Swim | Ages 6-15

This class covers swimming skills and water safety knowledge in a logical progression. Children will learn and work on skills such as getting their face/head wet, floating, gliding, front crawl with rotary breathing, backstroke, elementary backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.

The Gators Swim Team is made up of boys and girls 7-18 years of age who practice outdoors at Sunset pool and compete in the West Suburban Swim Conference throughout the summer.
