We also want to ensure that no one will be denied an opportunity to participate in our swim lesson programming due to economic hardship. As a non-profit organization we offer discounted group swim lessons for children and families in need of financial assistance. Please contact swimlessons@mills.edu for more information on how to apply for financial assistance.

All lessons are 30 minutes long with the exception of the competitive stroke program, which is 1 hour. There are no refunds or make ups for missed classes, and parents must stay in the designated observation area while the swim lesson takes place. Please take the time to review our entire swim lesson policy before joining us in the water.
