The Learn-to-Swim-Program is designed to help participants achieve maximum success. Learn-to-Swim courses are based on a logical, six-level progression that helps swimmers about 6+ years old and adults to develop their water safety, survival and swimming skills.
The Youth Program for children ages 6 to 14 years old. Each class is 45 minutes in duration. Generally there are 6-8 students per instructor. Children are evaluated and grouped according to skill level. There are five levels in the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program.Please try to arrive early to allow your child to use the restroom and to shower before lessons.
Children may not enter the water prior to class. This policy keeps the child from becoming fatigued or chilled. After class, your child may stay in the water (with your permission), provided that space is available. Children may wear goggles in the youth program.
