Family Swims

Have some fun in the pool as a family. Family Swims are open to all families, enrolled or not enrolled in classes. It’s a great way to check out your local Foss Swim School. Find your school and ask our team for details and availability.

Swim with our gear: 
FOSS pool equipment including noodles, barbells, dive rings and tub toys are available for use. Goggles too!

What to bring:
Don’t forget your suit and towel! You can also bring small toys; just be aware the lifeguards reserve the right to remove toys that impair the experience of other swimmers or present a safety issue.

Family Swim rules: 

  • All swimmers must be accompanied by a responsible adult in the water.
  • There must be 1 responsible adult in the water for every 2 children in a family.
  • Children under the age of 3 are required to wear a reusable swim diaper.

Find a school near you to see when upcoming Family Swims will be held. Call ahead to reserve your spot. 

Fun Meets

Fun Meets are a fun, non-competitive swim meet experience, where swimmers can demonstrate their progress and skills. Sign up in advance by contacting your school to have your swimmer(s) added to the event.
