This is registration for 1-week of free swimming lessons at Big Rapids Community Pool, Hutchinson St, Big Rapids for 4-10 year olds. The lessons are led by certified swimming instructors and are an introduction or Beginner Level. The goal is to teach your child basic swimming, floating and water safety skills (comparable to Red Cross Levels I and II) as well as encourage him/her to enjoy swimming.
This 30-minute class will be taught Monday thru Friday, available on a first-come-first-serve basis to those who register here.
For 4-6 year olds, class time each day is 10a.
For 7-10 year olds, class time each day is 9:30a.
2 children per household may register. Any child is entitled to register for 1 of the 2 weeks offered only. You do not have to be a resident of the City of Big Rapids to participate - this is open to all area residents. If the pool is closed due to inclement weather, this will be posted on the pool Facebook page or you can call the pool to confirm - missed days of class will not be made up.
Required equipment: swimming suit.
If your child is interested in continued swimming instruction, talk with the staff of the Big Rapids Community Pool. Scholarships are available on a limited basis.

(Beginner) I just stick my toes in the water but would like to swim!
(Intermediate) I can cannonball and dog paddle to the side but would really like to do more!
(Advanced) Sign me up for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo - I'm ready!
Due to the limited amount of space and a large amount of participation, this sign-up is currently for the waiting list for classes taking place the week of July 16th. We are working with the city to open more classes, as well as offer other alternatives and will keep you updated on any changes.
