Fred Endert Municipal Pool Starfish Swim Lessons


Please read carefully for important information regarding Swim Lessons.

To prevent the spread of Covid-19 and follow Starfish Aquatics guidelines, all swim instructors will be teaching classes from the deck. 

  • Masks are required inside the facility even for those who are vaccinated at this time.
  • All beginning swim lessons will require an adult in the water to participate with their student (1 student to 1 Adult) unless the student is in Blue Swim School (as they will be taught in the shallow end where the students can touch).  Please make sure to check the schedule to see what levels require an adult with a student.  


We are currently offering free Group Swim Lessons sponsored by the Del Norte Healthcare District! If you have a lesson credit on file we will use that for this session and then on your next session your lesson will be free through the Del Norte Healthcare District! Free swimming lessons will be offered to group lessons ONLY!

Swim Lesson Program Information: 

STARBABIES and STARTOTS for ages 6 months to 3 1/2 years

The purpose of this course is to foster in very young children a high comfort level in the water while at the same time training parents and caregivers in water safety and drowning prevention. This course does not teach children to become accomplished swimmers or to survive in the water; it does provide a confidence building, fun, and loving experience.

PRE-SWIM SCHOOL AGES 3 1/2 -6 1/2

Students work toward development of the five core swimming competencies and receive color stage awards for each achievement. The animal stages (Tadpole, Jellyfish, Otter, Porpoise) are used to divide students into broad ability groups.
Children progress at individual rates with the opportunity to learn the core swimming skills and progress to advanced strokes. Learning is self-paced but challenging.

STARFISH SWIM SCHOOL 6.5+ 

Students work toward development of the five core swimming competencies and receive color stage awards for each achievement. The color stages are used to divide students into broad ability groups.
Children progress at individual rates with the opportunity to learn the core swimming skills and progress to advanced strokes. Learning is self-paced but challenging.

STARFISH STROKE SCHOOL

Students refine freestyle and learn stroke technique for backstroke, butterfly, breaststroke, and more!
