FOSS Events

Looking for more time in the water? FOSS Events are offered at all locations and are open to all swimmers regardless of enrollment in lessons. Event registration is required. Contact your location to sign up and reserve your spot.

Family Fun Swims

Family Fun Swims are open to our families and their friends. Non-FOSS families are welcome. Registration is required.

Featuring… Breakthrough Clinics®

We provide teachers in the water who are there to give swimmers (and parents) a 15 minute lesson. Sign up for available clinics when you arrive for the Family Fun Swim.

Event Rules

Additional Information: 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. Don’t forget your suit and towel! FOSS instructors will be in the water to help facilitate play, answer questions, and give mini lessons. Pool equipment including noodles, barbells, dive rings, tub toys and magic carpets are available for use. Goggles too!! Families may bring life jackets and small toys but the lifeguard reserves the right to ask families to have additional assistance or remove toys if they see a safety issue.

Skill Clinics

Skill Clinics are a “mini class” where an instructor will lead the group in drills and games all geared to develop a single skill. It’s a great opportunity to get extra practice outside of class. Skill clinics support swimmers that need extra help on a specific skill. Whether your swimmer is struggling to float on their back or master their breaststroke kick, we have a Skill Clinic for you.

Event Rules

You must sign-up to participate. Limited spots are available and can fill quickly.
