A Message from the President

Hello all,

The KMSC community has, as a member benefit, the opportunity to purchase swim lessons from our wonderful lifeguard staff. Individual lessons are $30, group lessons of up to three swimmers are $45. Although the summer is winding down, you still may arrange one or more lessons for your children by emailing Alyssa Parness at

For liability reasons, ONLY guards who have been screened as instructors may give lessons at our pool. Under no circumstances may outside instructors be brought in to teach a lesson. While parents are of course welcome to instruct their own children, unauthorized individuals giving lessons will be asked to leave the pool.
