Swim Lessons- for Fun & Safety

The American Red Cross Swimming and Water Safety Program features progressive levels of learn-to-swim instructions to help swimmers of all abilities develop their swimming and water safety skills. For all sessions, we offer block swim lessons. You may sign up for a block of time per session. A skill test will be given on the first day of class and your child will be placed in a class with other students of similar skill level. Each session runs Monday through Friday for 2 weeks. Rainy days are 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 requirement by the start of the session. Early registration is encouraged as classes fill quickly. No class 7/4.
