KINGSPORT — Though the summer is winding down and temperatures will (hopefully) be cooling off in the near future, it’s still a good time to consider taking swim lessons.

In fact, it might be the best time.

The Kingsport Aquatic Center has announced its fall swim lesson schedule. Officials with the KAC say autumn is the ideal time for swim lessons due to smaller class sizes, which allow your child to have more one-on-one interaction with an American Red Cross certified swim instructor.


All swim lessons at the Kingsport Aquatic Center are American Red Cross courses and are offered in group, private, semi-private and adaptive settings. Each session includes eight classes, which are offered as Monday/Wednesday, Tuesday/Thursday or Saturday classes. If you’re unsure what swim skills your child has, a swim test is offered to help determine the correct class.

Fall swim lessons begin Sept. 4. For KAC and YMCA members, lessons are $50 for the first child and $45 for additional children. For non-members, lessons are $60 for the first child and $55 for additional children.


September — Registration is Aug. 25 through Sept. 2

Monday/Wednesday classes: Sept. 5 through Sept. 26

Tuesday/Thursday classes: Sept. 4 through Sept. 27
