Outdoor Swim Lessons 

The City of Livonia is striving to have the best swim lesson program in the area. We have combined the best aspects of other Learn to Swim Programs into our own custom program. 

Class times are 50 minutes for ages 3 and over.  A color group system is used based on a few benchmark skills.   Please register by the appropriate color group.  On the first day of class we will then place participants with instructors according to more specific abilities.  We have developed our program to emphasize parent involvement, safety, and small instructor to child ratios.

Registration Information
Please note the starting dates to begin registering at the Livonia Parks & Recreation Office for summer swim lesson registration * 15100 Hubbard (Five Mile/Hubbard) *
