Swim Lessons - Progressive Youth

The American Red Cross Swimming and Water Safety Program features progressive levels of learn-to-swim instructions to help swimmers of all ages and abilities develop their swimming and water safety skills. For all sessions, we are offering "block" swim lessons. You may sign up for a block of time each session. A skill test will be given on the first day of class and your child will be placed in the class with other students near the same skill level. Each session will run Monday through Friday for two weeks. Rainy days will be used for safety classes on the beach or under the pavilion (excluding severe weather). All participants must be potty trained and meet the minimum age requirements by the start of the session. Register early as classes fill up quickly.
