Learn to Swim

The Town of Castle Rock’s Learn to Swim program strives to open the door to a lifetime of opportunities in and around water through progressive instruction in a group or private setting. Our program specializes in teaching all ages and ability levels from toddlers to adults.    

The Learn to Swim program has an opportunity for individuals of any ability.

Our group and private lesson program follows a progressive curriculum developed to ensure swimmers learn the skills and endurance needed to be safe and confidant in and around the water. 

With a maximum depth of 4 feet 6 inches, and temperature around 87 degrees, the Miller Activity Complex (MAC) Pool is an ideal location for swimmers to learn to be comfortable in the water.  

Are you an experienced swimmer? We also offer competitive swim teams, competitive diving, SCUBA classes, and American Red Cross Lifeguarding and safety classes.
