Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, group swim lessons are currently on hold pending additional guidance from the IDPH.
All Byron Park District aquatic activities are held in the Byron High School Swimming Pool which is open to the entire community! The Byron High School pool is the perfect pool for lap swimming, water walking, open swim and group usage. The Byron High School Swimming Pool is a six lane 25 yard indoor pool equipped with a one meter diving board. Pool depth ranges from 4 ft. to 12 ft.
Group Swim Lessons
Why our curriculum works!
The Byron Park District's swim lesson curriculum combines expertise from the American Red Cross, Swim Lesson University, World Aquatic Babies & Children Network and USA Swimming Agencies. This curriculum has a greater focus on earlier progression of the front crawl stroke utilizing in-line body positioning (face in water) with a delayed focus on the backstroke. Plus, all instructors complete a comprehensive child-centered training program, in which they learn the progressions of each stroke and interactive teaching techniques!
Private Swim Lessons
The Byron Park District is offering two sessions of private 1-on-1 swim lessons this Fall. Lessons will be held on Sundays for five weeks. Please select your preferred 1/2 time frame when registering. Registration may be done online or in person.
