American Red Cross Swim Lessons

This class will help your child learn to swim at an early age. Participants learn about water safety and basic skills to get them swimming independently.  Your child has the opportunity to advance through three swim levels developed for their age group by the American Red Cross.

Swim Lessons keep kids safe and open the door for them to become future lifeguards or be on our swim team. Swimming is a lifelong skill. Our experienced and certified American Red Cross instructors emphasize water safety and swimming skills, while teaching children with praise and encouragement.

Participants must bring their own towel, bathing suit and a change of dry clothes.  We would also encourage everyone to wear water shoes, flip flops or sandals to prevent slipping in the locker rooms or on the pool deck.
