School Ages 6 to 15 Swimming Lessons Beginner to Intermediate Lessons By registering online, you will be subject to a non-refundable $2 transaction fee. For FREE registration, please visit the pool where you would like to attend lessons.
This is a grouped registration for children beginning swimming lessons to those with intermediate swimming ability. Based on previous experience and a brief assessment, children will be separated into one of the levels described below:
Learn-to-Swim Level 1 - Introduction to Water Skills (Beginners) - Safely entering and exiting the pool, floating, blowing bubbles and basic movements Learn-to-Swim Level 2 - Fundamental Aquatic Skills (Advanced Beginners) Building on the previous level practicing submerging the face, effective arm and leg actions on front and back, and the ability to change position and direction in the pool. Learn-to-Swim Level 3 - Stroke Development (Intermediate) Skilled front crawl, back crawl, elementary backstroke, rotary or "side" breathing, and treading water.
To advance out of this group, your child must demonstrate the requirements for Learn-to-swim Level 3, including the American Red Cross Water Competency Skill: Jump into deep water, surface and tread water or float for 1 minute, turn around 360 degrees and swim 25 yards (across the pool) on the front or back.

Please note that swimming lessons will occur in small groups of 5-10 students per group. We will space children apart, but social distancing may not be achievable throughout all activities and skill practice.
