Learn to Swim

Learn to Swim Classes are designed for children 4 through 10 years old who are not quite ready to explore the bigger pools.  The 92- degree water temperature and small environment eases the fear associated with water.  Our instructors are certified through the American Red Cross and our classes are based upon the American Red Cross swimming progression.  There are six children per class and parents may join their child in the water.  Classes meet one time per week for 30 minutes.  Cost is $50.00 for eight-week session. (A $5.00 discount will be offered for additinal siblings.)  Registration opens about two weeks prior to classes starting.
