2020 outdoor SUMMER SWIM LESSONS at mitchell pool
For the 2020 summer season swim lessons will be available for children 5 and under. To ensure proper social distancing instructors will teach the class from the pool deck while parents and caregivers spend time in the water with the student. Face masks are recommended for adults while in the water.
To register for Learn-to-Swim classes, you may do so only at Jewett Park Community Center Registration Office or online at deerfieldparks.org, not at the pool. You may also register by mail or by fax. Swim lessons are available only for Deerfield Park District residents.
If you choose to register in person at Jewett Park Community Center, instructions on making a reservation for building entry prior to June 29 and health and safety guidelines are listed on the registration page on our website.
Refunds will not be issued due to bad weather. If the weather is questionable for swim lessons, call the Mitchell Pool office at 847-945-7760 fifteen minutes prior to your scheduled class to see if lessons will be held.
