Adult Swimming Lessons (Group)

Group and private swim lessons will not be offered during the Spring 2020 semester. We are in transition, and our focus at this time is repairing the pool and assembling a new staff of instructors and getting them trained.  We will release an announcement on summer swim lesson  registration when we have more information to share. 

Registration and payment can be completed online, by phone at 906-487-2073, or at the SDC Ticket Office. Participants must sign a waiver of liability prior to participation. The SDC is not responsible for lost or stolen property. Please do not leave valuables unattended.

It's never too late to learn how to swim! Adult swim lessons help participants gain basic aquatic skills and swim strokes, as well as improved proficiency and skill refinement. Participants will also learn skills needed to stay safe in and around the water and how to help themselves and others in an aquatic emergency. Participants can expect to gain confidence in and out of the water and learn in a friendly and safe environment in a small-group setting. Adult swim lessons are for teens 13 and up and adults of all ages.


SDC Pool

The Student Development Complex lap pool and dive tank are licensed by the State of Michigan and inspected by the Western U.P. District Health Department. Accordingly, the water is analyzed and the temperature is taken daily. The temperature fluctuates between 81-87 degrees and this will depend on the pool usage, outside temperature and water flow rate. The water is replenished automatically due to water lost through splash, backwashing of sand filters and evaporation. This new cool water intake will not be 81 degrees until it is well mixed into the existing pool water.

Activity Level

Low to moderate.

Special Requirements

Appropriate swimwear (bathing suits, no cutoffs or street clothes) and a towel. Swim caps and goggles recommended.
