GROUP SWIM LESSONS
Group Swim Lessons are a great way for children to learn how to swim or to develop their current swimming abilities. Group Swim accommodates a variety of ages starting at six months. All Swim Lessons are taught by an American Red Cross certiﬁed Water Safety Instructor. Each of the levels is designed by the American Red Cross Association and is fun and informative. The lessons used are easy for parents to transfer into private or open water even after the lessons are over helping to continue with the development of the child. Swim lessons are divided into six levels: One through Five and Parent Tot. Each level includes six lessons of 30 minutes each. The program is designed to allow a child to develop from Parent Tot through level 6 over time. After a child has completed all six levels, they will receive a book to take home and practice their skills. Parents are highly encouraged to remain at the pool for the duration of the lesson.
please visit the administrative ofﬁces located in the lobby of the Student Recreation Center. Classes may ﬁll quickly so please sign up early or join the waiting list for the next available slot. The fee is $35 for each level.
