Swim Lessons

Keep cool this summer by staying active - learn to swim! The Mishawaka Parks Department offers swim lessons for children ages 5-18 at Merrifield Pool. There are a variety of session dates & times to choose from with each session running for two weeks (Monday-Friday) for 45 minutes each day. On the first day of lessons each child will be tested and based on their ability will be divided into different groups on day two.

The Mom/Dad & Me session is for beginning swimmers and a parent, or guardian must be in the water with the child. These lessons teach basic water safety, how to enter the water and basic water skills (such as blowing bubbles, how to put your hands and kicking). It is a fun class that allows younger swimmers to become familiar with the water.

Enrollment: Registration fee is $35 per child per session and payment is due at time of registration by cash, check or money order. If paying by check, a valid Driver's License will be required.

Contact the Mishawaka Parks Department at (574) 258-1664 with any questions.
