Swimming is a sport everyone can enjoy, regardless of age or limitations. For safety, for fun or for exercise, swimming is a skill everyone should have. American Red Cross swimming classes are offered almost every month for ages 6 months to 99+ years! Several two-week sessions are offered during summer months.
Beginning at 6 months, we offer three levels of parent/child aquatics (parents must be in the water with children). Three levels of preschool classes are available, and six levels of Learn-to-Swim classes are offered. We also offer Teen and Adult Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced courses for those who did not have an opportunity to learn skills earlier or for those who may want to refresh skills learned previously.
Other American Red Cross courses available include: Lifeguard Training, Water Safety Instructor, Lifeguard Instructor, Lifeguard Management, and Fundamentals of Instructor Training.
Summer Sessions are:
May 11-22, May 26-June 5, June 8-19, June 22-July 2, July 6-17, July 20-31
