Indoor Swim Lesson Registration will begin

November 12 at 6:30 a.m. for residents November 13 at 6:30 a.m. for non-residents

Registrations will not be processed before this time. In person registration between 6:30 and 8:30 a.m. will be held at the indoor aquatic centers only.

Please note the following: Parents: in order to assist us in offering a quality program for your child, you may not remain at the class unless it is otherwise stated in the description. Experience has shown that children are easily distracted. Observation is allowed from designated areas only. At some facilities, clear observation may not be possible. Observation is not possible at the MLK pool. Class fee covers only the lessons and no other use of the facility. Participants may enter the locker rooms ten minutes before the start of class. Lesson questions should be directed to the facility where you wish to enroll. For a detailed list of skills taught in each class, please inquire at the pool where you will be taking lessons.

Read course descriptions carefully and select the level at which the student has mastered all prerequisite skills. Review the Guidelines for Placement in Swim Classes on the following page. If you are unsure of the student’s level or ability, evaluations are available at each indoor facility for one hour after the last lesson every Saturday and Sunday. All other times are by appointment. Registrations will not be accepted after the first lesson. There are no transfers. If you have enrolled in the incorrect level, you will be withdrawn and withdrawal fees will apply.

Aquatics Lesson Weather Policy When an indoor lesson is canceled due to inclement weather, a practice pass will be given to each participant at the end of the session. Practice passes can be used for admission to a recreational swim session at any Montgomery County Recreation aquatic center. Practice passes expire six months from the date of issue and are valid for one adult and one child. When two or more lessons are canceled due to inclement weather, a pro-rated credit will be issued to the payer’s ActiveMONTGOMERY account at the end of the session. The credit issued will be for the cost of the canceled lesson(s).  The credit can be applied to future aquatics lessons or any other Montgomery County Recreation program.

Please check each pool's listings for lesson schedule changes due to facility conflicts. Lessons will be held on all other days the facility is open.

Using Mindfulness to Increase Happiness 18 & Up: For most of us, happiness is dependent on outside conditions. We suffer from the “if only” disease and never have enough to be satisfied. Possessions, jobs or relationships - we’re always looking for the next big thing that will finally make us happy. Eventually we realize that approach doesn’t work. Mindfulness meditation gives us tools to create a lasting happiness that doesn’t rely on others. We’ll explore how clinging to our attitudes and possessions create dissatisfaction, and how loving, kindness, generosity and gratitude can help change your outlook on life. No prior meditation experience is required to participate in this class.

Mindfulness of the Body

Tai Chi - Continuing

18 & Up: Of the four foundations of mindfulness, the first and most important is mindfulness of the body. As infants, we learn unconsciously to interpret everything that happens in our lives as pleasant or unpleasant based on how we experience it through the five senses in our body. And yet, as we grow, most of us forget this and live our lives from the neck up. Join us for a half day of meditation, short talks, and group discussions which will increase your awareness of the body and its relationship to the mind. No prior meditation experience is needed to enroll in this class.

Ages 18 & Up: Students in this class have already taken Tai Chi - Beginning and will continue to learn this graceful, flowing form.
