2013 Crawford Pool Swimming Lessons
The Shaler Township Crawford Pool offers a comprehensive program of swimming lessons. In the interest of quality swimming lessons, safety of the students and the limited teaching space and instructors, it is necessary to limit the number of students in each session.
|Fees with Swim Pass||Fees without Swim Pass|
|$30.00 Per Child||$50.00 Per Child|
Children under the age of six who are Shaler Residents are not required to have a season pool pass, however the legal guardian of that child must have a season pool pass to qualify for the $30.00 lesson rate.
Because of the restricted numbers, parents and students must realize the commitment they have in attending their classes regularly. Any student who misses two classes without advanced notice will be dismissed from the class. Emergencies and illness are the exception. If the student is forced to miss a number of classes, it might affect his/her chances of passing that particular course. If classes are cancelled due to the weather, we will make every effort to schedule make-up classes at the end of the season. If you have any questions regarding cancellation due to the weather, please feel free to call the pool.
