SwimLessons HEADER
Swimming is a life skill and knowing how to swim makes it possible to enjoy pools, water and the outdoors. Wentzville Parks and Recreation offers multiple levels of swimming lessons for children - from water discovery, to water safety, to stroke development.

As swimmers master each skill, they are empowered to move up through the stages, each time challenging themselves and learning something new. The result? Greater safety, more confidence and a lifelong love of the sport of swimming.

Below are the class descriptions based on age and stage of swimming ability. For more information about the classes offered, click on the level of interest. To register online, click on the pool of your choice. If you need further assistance, please call (636) 332-9236 or email fun@wentzvillemo.org
