Learn to Swim Classes

Our learn to swim classes are taught by trained, certified, professional American Red Cross Instructors in a friendly and warm environment. The American Red Cross programs are available from 6 months to adult age levels. Classes are taught in small groups with others of their own skill level. Each participant is assessed to assure they are in the correct level. Your child will progress up the levels from beginners to a competitive swimmer. They will receive a card as they pass from level to level. Knowing how to swim is a great way to keep safe and have a lot of fun.
