Poway Unified School District Summer Programs!

The Poway Unified School District offers summer swim lessons.  Please have a look through our information here.  For more registration information, please contact Aquatics Coordinator, Tim Oelgoetz at e-mail address: toelgoetz@powayusd.com or call 858-521-2800 ext 2873.

PUSD Swim Lessons offers quality swim classes for  children ages 3 to 16. With teachings from our well qualified instructors, students progress in their abilities and confidence in the water. The swim lesson experience gives children an opportunity to have fun while learning the fundamentals of water safety.

Our approach to teaching swimming is based on the American Red Cross certified method. PUSD has adopted some of the finer points of this program and incorporated them into our own proven philosophy on teaching children of all ages to be comfortable in the water.

2020 Summer Lesson Dates & Costs 

The PUSD Aquatics Team have been diligent in the past few weeks in creating a reopening process that will help protect staff and all individuals who choose to participate in our learn to swim program.  We thank all of you for your patience during this challenging time.

*In order to safely reopen, and maintain social distancing and operational best practices during COVID-19 pandemic, please adhere to the following guidlines when registering and arriving to the sites.

*Swim instructors will teach swim lessons from the pool deck.  For those children who require close contact for the lessons (beg. starfish and otters) (or otherwise require an adult with them in the pool), parents must be in the water with their children and the swim instructor will teach on the pool deck.    

*At this time to minimize the number of people present, only one adult (parent or legal guardian) may accompany the swimmer and view the lesson.  The adult must have completed the appropriate paperwork to attend.  Adults in attendance must remain six-feet apart while viewing lessons.

*The Aquatics Program will make changes as necessary to comply with any changes to public health guidelines.  

*Please be sure to print out the reminder flyer for all of our policies, along with the waiver and registration form for sign-ups.

Swim lessons will be offered only at Rancho Bernardo HS and Del Norte HS for summer 2020 at this time.
