Aquatics Programs

The city of la Habra swim program will be in full swing this summer, with new and returning events! As in the past, there will be swim lessons for children and open swim for all ages. There also will be Dive-In movies, where participants can cool off in or next to the pool while watching a family friendly movie. The aquatics staff will also staff the kids' zone at the Concerts in the Park this summer.

Swim Lessons


Swim lessons for youth are offered at the La Habra High School pool, 801 W. Highlander Ave., from June 10th through August 1st. The La Habra Swim Program was developed to teach children water safety in a calm, safe, fun environment.  We follow the American Red Cross Learn to Swim approach, implementing the stepping stone method, which places children into the appropriate skill level classes for the quickest possible progression.  Class sessions last for two weeks and are held Monday-Thursday in 40-minute sessions.  The cost is $65 per child, per two-week session.  You can register in person at the La Habra Community Center, over the phone, or online.  Additional fees apply for phone and online registration. Here is the 2019 swim lesson schedule:

  • June 10th-June 20th
  • June 24th-July 3rd (no class on Thursday, July 4th)
  • July 8th-July 18th
  • July 22nd-August 1st
