If you like Zumba, and want something a little different, try Aqua Zumba! Aqua Zumba® blends the Zumba® philosophy with water resistance, for one pool party you shouldn’t miss! All levels welcome! You don’t have to swim to partake in the activity. Those looking to make a splash by adding a low-impact, high-energy aquatic exercise to their fitness routine. There is less impact on your joints during an Aqua Zumba® class so you can really let loose. Water creates natural resistance, which means every step is more challenging and helps tone your muscles.

Upon registering for your first swim lessons at the Medford High School Pool, your child must be level tested to ensure that they are registered for the appropriate level class. Level testing takes place during the listed dates. This policy stands even if the child has previously taken lessons at another facility. If your child has never taken lessons before or is still a beginner, you may register them for level 1 without taking a level test.

When registering your child for a subsequent session, place them in the same level they were previously in, unless the instructor tells you that they have moved into a different level. The instructors will continually evaluate swimming students and will move them into a different level if necessary. Swim instructors reserve the right to move a child into a different level at any point during the session.
