Swim Lessons

The City’s goal is always to make the Plunge as safe as possible and provide a welcoming environment for the hundreds of patrons we serve each day. 

Our friendly and experienced instructors continue to provide the same quality swim lessons we always have but in this new COVID-19 time we have had to make a few adjustments to ensure your swimmers safety. With Cal OSHA guidelines still requiring employees to wear masks our instructors will remain teaching from the deck but please stay tuned for updates. This means that all swimmers level 3 and lower must be accompanied in the water by an adult or guardian over the age of 18. Dive in and see what's in store you!  When selecting your classes please use the Swim Level Descriptions as a guide. 

Please Note: The Updated COVID-19 Lesson Structure listed below.
