Pullman Aquatic & Fitness Center is offering both Group and Private Swim Lessons. There are multiple classes available for all skill levels. Swim screenings to access each participants skill level will be required for swimmers who have not taken lessons at PAFC before. To schedule your swim screening, call PAFC at (509)338-3290.

If you are interested in Private Swim Lessons, the first step is to fill out an A La Carte Swim Lesson request form, and return it to the aquatic center to schedule lessons with an instructor. For more information or help scheduling call (509) 338-3290.


The purpose of American Red Cross Swimming is to teach people how to be safe in, on, or around water and to teach individuals of different ages and abilities how to swim in an logical progression. The program covers the knowledge and skills needed for aquatic skill development. As participants develop these skills, they become safer and better swimmers.

Late/Cancellation Policy:

Private lessons will begin at the time established when originally scheduling lessons. Late patrons may still join their lessons late, but the lesson will not run past the originally scheduled end time. If a lesson needs to be cancelled/rescheduled the patron must notify PAFC a minimum of 3 hours in advance.

Information on A La Carte swim lessons can be found in the brochure link below.

It should be noted that refunds will not be offered for swim lessons that are cancelled due to inclement weather. The lessons will be rescheduled to the very best of our ability, but as we cannot control the weather no refunds will be given. If the lesson is cancelled due to lack of enrollment, then patron's will receive a refund either in the original form of payment or as an account credit.

Important Additional Information:
  • Swim screenings are required for participants who want to enroll in a level above Level 1 and are not currently enrolled in our program. Call (509) 338-3290 for an appointment.
  • Sessions are prorated beginning the 3rd class of a session. Late enrollment will be accepted up to midpoint of a session. Makeups are only scheduled when pool space is available to do so.
