Eagle Group Summer Lessons – We are planning on offering swim lessons for the summer. It will be different from past years, but hopefully will be able to offer some form of group swim lessons. We will not be offering privates at this time but are looking into it and will announce once we do. We will have more information on swim lessons by the latest June 3rd, so please check here for more information


We offer youth learn-to-swim lessons and swim team opportunities throughout the year to introduce your child to the water or improve their swimming skills. Lessons and swim team are offered year-round at the Gypsum Rec Center indoor pool. Swim lessons are $48-$64 a session, depending on the number of classes offered in the session.
