Swim Lesson Information:
The American Red Cross Swimming and Water Safety program teaches people how to be safe in, on, or around water and to teach individuals of different ages and abilities how to swim. In a logical progression, the program covers the knowledge and skills needed for aquatic development. As participants develop these skills, they will become safer and better swimmers. All of our courses are taught by American Red Cross certified Water Safety Instructors. We strive for a 1:5 participant ratio as much as possible. Classes with less than 3 participants may be cancelled. Children 3 and under, and those not toilet trained, must wear swim diaper or plastic pants.
