Summertime is pool time, and the Kingsport Aquatic Center is here to make sure you or your children are ready to dive in and swim. Summer swim lessons begin this June.

There are four sessions of summer lessons in June and July. All group swim lessons at the Kingsport Aquatic Center are American Red Cross certified. Swim lessons are offered in group, private, and semi-private settings to best suit your child’s needs or your schedule. Summer sessions are eight classes long, Monday through Thursday for two weeks. If you’re unsure of your child’s swim skills, a swim test can help the KAC determine the correct class level for them.

If you are an Aquatic Center or YMCA member, lessons are $50 for your first child and $45 per additional child in your household. If you’re a nonmember lessons are $60 for your first child and $55 per additional child. Scholarships are available for qualifying applicants.

Registration begins in person and online at 8 a.m. on the dates listed below, and will close at 5 p.m. on the final day. To make online registration easier, please create an account before the day of registration. If an account is created after 5 p.m. on Friday and before 8 a.m. on Monday, you will not receive a password until Monday at 8 a.m. Google Chrome and Firefox are compatible web browsers. YMCA members who plan to register online need to show their YMCA card to the KAC front desk staff before registration in order to update the system to reflect your YMCA membership.
