Longmont Recreation Services offers swim lessons at two year-round sites, Centennial Pool and the Longmont Recreation Center (LRC), and one summer-only site, Sunset Pool. Swim lessons are offered for infants as young as 6 months with a parent, for children 3 years of age and older without a parent, and for teens, adults, and seniors. We offer swim lessons every day of the week, all year long to best fit your busy schedule. 

Please note: Centennial Pool Closed Indefinitely, effective August 28, 2018

A faulty sump pump caused considerable damage to the mechanical room at Centennial Pool resulting in the closure of the entire building until further notice.  Swim Lessons will still be held as scheduled, but see below for location changes.  

  • All previously scheduled Centennial Pool Swim Lessons will be held at the Longmont Recreation Center, EXCEPT Sunday Afternoon Lessons (CANCELLED).  Those will resume once Centennial Pool reopens.
