Dive in to summer at East End Pool and Norman P. Smalley Pool at York Commons. Whether you're new to swimming, want to purchase a season pool pass, or host a pool party, the Elmhurst Park District has everything you need for a fun, safe summer in the water. Read on:
The Elmhurst Park District's Elmhurst Aquatics Academy offers five different programs based on the American Red Cross Learn to Swim Program. The purpose of the American Red Cross Learn to Swim Program is to teach people how to be safe in, on or around water and to teach individuals of different ages and abilities how to swim. The program is divided into four sections based on age to better meet the needs of all participants.
The age requirements are as follows:
|Parent Tot I||Ages 6 months - 17 months|
|Parent Tot II||Ages 17 months - 36 months|
|Tiny Tots||Age 2; independent without parent|
|Little Learn to Swim||Ages 3-5; independent without parent|
|Learn to Swim||Ages 5-11|
|Adult||Ages 18 and Older|
Private & Semi-Private Swim Lessons
Private and Semi-Private swim lessons are available for participants ages 3 years to adult, and are taught by our certified Water Safety Instructors. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis. Once the instructor is assigned, they will contact you to schedule lessons that are mutually convenient. Private lessons will only be scheduled for times when the pool is open for public swim. Full payment is required before the start of the first lesson.
