Swimming Lessons

Beginning September 21, 2020 swimming lessons will be available at Westsyde pool. Please note that parents or caregivers of all preschool aged children and children in Swim Kids levels under level 5 will need to be in the water with their children throughout the entirety of the swimming lesson. Instructors will be teaching from the pool deck to be able to offer four spots in each lesson, which will total eight people in a lesson at one time with the parents in the water assisting with their child's learning. Registration for lessons will be available at Kamloops.ca/PerfectMind on September 15, 2020.

Please note that the first week of lessons (September 21) will be private lessons only, following that we will offer two week lesson sets that will run Monday to Thursday. Our lessons will be during the week from 9:30 am until 11:30 am up until October 8, 2020.

Details will be coming soon for lessons offered after the Thanksgiving weekend.
