Re: Lessons for 11-year-old beginner (Feb 2003)
The Piedmont Swim Club has excellent instructors. It's not
cheap, but it's worth the money: our 6yo swims like a champ! Two
of the best teachers are Kelly and Tim.
We had great success at Piedmont Swim Club, but I think they give
lessons only during the spring and summer. It's an outdoor pool. Playground
nearby can make the lesson part of an outing.
Piedmont has swimming lessons in the summer evenings. I'm not sure of the
last time, but it seems we went at 7 for some of the lessons. The program is
good. You don't have to be a member of the club or a resident of the city.
Call the Piedmont Rec Dept for details.
The City of Piedmont has lots of swim classes for the 3-6 age group: 4
two week sessions with classes all day, including both 5:30 and 6:30
PM. I have not tried them, but am planning to this summer. We
received a brochure with the list of classes after we called the
office. The registration form must be picked up in person, and has to
be sent in (or maybe faxed, I'm not sure). The person I talked to
recommended sending the form on May 27 (to get there by June 1) for
the best chance of the classes I want. The cost seems pretty
reasonable, and is not that much more than the City of Oakland class
