Parent & Infant Classes-Ages 6 months-3 years

This course works to help children safely enjoy being in and around the water. Parents are instructed, in water, how to assist in the development of their child's future swimming skills.

Pre-School Classes-Ages 4 - 5 years
This course is designed for children pre-school age and that are ready to help bridge the gap from parent assisted lessons to group lessons with just children and the instructor. The American Red Cross learn-to-swim program makes this fun and easy for everyone. They will continue to build and learn swimming skills to help them advance to the next level.


Adult Swimming Lessons

It’s never to late! Level 1 is designed for beginning swimmers, ages 13 and older, who have not yet learned to swim or those who are not comfortable in the water. Level 2 is designed for those swimmers, ages 13 and older who are able to swim, but are looking to develop or refine their strokes. Great for lap swimmers.

Youth Swimming Lessons

Swim Tests are T.B.A  for 2017. Every year a new swim test must be done. 

Level 1

Level 1 is for beginning swimmers ages 6 - 12. In Level 1, children will learn the basic water safety skills and become comfortable in the water. Skills taught in this class include blowing bubbles, back and front float, kicking, and front crawl.

Level 2

Level 2 is designed for children ages 6 - 12 who can swim at least 15 yards unassisted. The goal of Level 2 is to increase the participants skill level by refining and emphasizing breathing techniques, freestyle and backstroke, and introducing the breast stroke.

Level 3

Level 3 is designed for efficient swimmers who are looking to refine their free, back, and breast strokes. In Level 3, the participants are also introduced to the butterfly and side strokes, flip turns, and diving blocks. Participants must be 6 years of age and older to participate in youth swimming lessons. All participants must be swim tested and issued a placement card prior to registering for youth swimming lessons to ensure proper placement. Please call our staff to schedule a swim test at 1 of our 3 locations.
