Aquatics Lessons

Please note:  due to the latest announcements from AHS regarding COVID-19, the Okotoks Rec Centre, Pason Centennial Arena and the Foothills Centennial Centre are CLOSED until further notice.

All currently running swim lessons and programs have been cancelled.  Account credits will be applied for the remaining scheduled classes.  Please allow up to 10 business days for the credits to appear on your account. Registration has been suspended for all community programs, swim lessons, child care and day camps until further notice.

We will continue to honour a flexible cancellation policy for programs and facility passes.  If you wish to do this, please contact Client Services.


Registered Swimming Programs

We have many private, semi-private and group aquatics programs and lessons for all ages. Pick one that suits your interests:

  • Parented preschool swim lessons
  • Non-parented preschool swim lessons
  • Stroke improvement classes
  • Adult swim lessons

  • Lifesaving Society Lifeguard Courses

Learn more about the Lifesaving Society's swim for life programs, used to instruct all swim programs at the Okotoks Recreation Centre's Aquatic Centre.


If the lesson or course you are looking for is full, then please ask to be put on the waitlist. Staff use these waitlists to add classes based on greatest demand. Please keep in mind that added classes may have different start times and dates, so you may need to be a little flexible. 

Registration Tips

When registering online please make sure that you complete all the prompts required. This information will assist our staff in making certain that your child is placed in the correct class. All swimmers will also be evaluated by their instructor on the first day of lesson to ensure that swimmers are in the class that meets their individual needs best.
