We have new descriptions for youth and adult swimming lessons for the summer of 2021 at the Oxford City Pool listed below. Each of the levels are listed, and the ages that fit those descriptions are listed as well. There will be six different dates for swimming lessons this summer. Four of the six are set for children (June 7-11, June 14-18, July 12-16 & July 19-23). Adults are scheduled for June 21-25 and July 26-30.

Registration for these classes will begin on Tuesday, June 1 at 8 a.m. The swimming lessons can be found at oxfordparkcommission.com starting June 1. You may also get registered in person by visiting the Coach Howell Center Information Desk. You must have an OPC website account in order to take part in swimming lessons. 

We have classes set in the morning (10-10:45) and evening (6-6:45) each week. Class size for each session is 20. There is no charge for swimming lessons, but each child and adult is limited to one session during the summer.
