Learn to Swim

Red Cross Learn To Swim Program

Our aquatics program is designed to teach personal water safety and stroke development to youth and adults alike.

Our lessons range from “Mommy and Me” style classes for those 2–5 that are looking to gain early confidence in the water all the way to Learn to Swim lessons for adults. Individuals learn at their own pace, and advancing to the next level is dependent on the completion of required skills.

Our sessions run 8 classes at a time giving students the time and exposure needed to work on confidence in the water and stroke development. As an added bonus we offer 1–2 open swim times per session that are free to those currently enrolled in lessons. This gives each student the opportunity to explore the water at their own pace.

No matter what age, we have a program perfect for your child.  Learning to swim can make so many lifelong activities available.  Get started today!
