Swim Lessons

Course Descriptions

    Lessons for youth and adults cost $25.00 per person.

    • Level One: Swimmers will build their comfort level with the water. They will learn how to blow bubbles, hold their breath, float, and basic kicking.
    • Level Two: Swimmers will begin learning standard strokes such as freestyle and backstroke. They will learn how to change direction in the water, safely enter and exit the pool, and safely float all while building on the skills that they learned in level one.
    • Level Three: Swimmers will begin learning advanced strokes such as the breaststroke and the butterfly. At the conclusion of the class, students will need to swim one complete lap of the pool using all four of the strokes they have learned.
    • Level Four: Swimmers will perfect their swimming in preparation for competitive team membership. They will tread water, learn survival swimming, and drills to increase stamina and skill.

    Swim Team

    The Tolleson Tidalwaves Swim Team participates in the MarWest Swim League. In order to participate on the swim team, swimmers must be able to swim the length of the pool without assistance and without stopping. Swim team practice is Monday through Thursday from 7:00–9:00 a.m. The swim team coaches will help swimmers perfect specific strokes but will not be teaching basic swim skills. Please see the swim lesson schedule above if your swimmer needs basic swim instruction. 

    The registration cost pays for the league registration, meet medals, and other miscellaneous costs associated with the swim team. Each swimmer must provide an appropriate swimsuit, royal blue in color (not navy blue). Parents/guardians are responsible for all transportation to and from swim practices, meets, and other team events. Parents/guardians must sign a league parent code of conduct and honor that code of conduct at all league events including practices. 

    The Tolleson Tidalwaves need volunteers to assist with both home and away swim meets. To be successful, we ask that each parent/guardian volunteer work at least one meet. This will ensure we are able to staff the swim meets appropriately. If interested, there will be a parent meeting on May 23 at 8:00 a.m. at the Tolleson Pool. We will be discussing volunteering for swim team in more detail.
