Water safety is top priority at the Tukwila Pool

By Michelle Simpson

Did you know that here at the Tukwila Pool, all of our swim lesson instructors are certified Water Safety Instructors through the American Red Cross?

A Water Safety Instructor, also known as a WSI, teach people of all ages and skill levels to stay safe in and around water. WSI’s are trained to prioritize development of skills, drowning prevention education, and emergency response.

As summer comes to an end and school starts back up, please remember that we offer swimming lessons year-round! To sign up for lessons with one of our certified Water Safety Instructors, please call 206-267-2350, go online www.tukwilapool.org, or you may come in to get registered.

We still have a few Tukwila Residents scholarships available if your child is on free or reduced lunch at school, or if you meet the income requirements! Scholarship information can be found on our website or you may come in to the pool and inquire.

See you at the pool!
