Online registration will open Monday, July 15. Please scroll down below the Registration section for additional information about Session 2. 

A few general notes about the Vanderbilt Club swim program. We offer weekday lessons which run from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and weekend lessons from 10 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Swim lessons last 30 minutes and run on the half hour. We do not offer drop-ins and there are no refunds once the session starts. If you are a newcomer to our swim program, we kindly ask you to read and complete Step 1 of the registration process listed below. 

Learning to swim at a young age is an invaluable, lifelong skill. We thank you for the opportunity to teach your kids and develop a love of water.
