Swim Lessons

The American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program focuses on building skills one step at a time. By giving youths the opportunity to master one element before moving on to the next, our swim classes make it easy for your child to build confidence in the water. 

In the Learn-to-Swim program, parents or guardians of children up to 3 years of age will actively participate in their kids' swim lessons. This not only helps increase the child's comfort level in the water, but can help parents understand the process and practice skills with their children between classes. 

AGES: 3 to 12 years

LEVEL 1 Introduction to Water Skills: Students will learn how to feel comfortable in the water and safely enjoy it. 

LEVEL 2  Fundamentals of Aquatic Skills: Children will learn basic swimming skills. 

LEVEL 3 Stroke Development: Additional guided practice will help students improve their skills. 

Ages: 6-12 years

LEVEL 4 Stroke Improvement: Kids will gain confidence during swim lessons, improve their stroke and gain additional aquatic skills. 

LEVEL 5: Stroke Refinement: Guidance allows kids to refine their strokes and become more efficient swimmers.


PARENT and CHILD CLASS  

AGES: 6 months to 3 years

Parents join their child in the water. Classes focus on water introduction and comfort for those not yet comfortable without a parent in the water.

TEEN and ADULT SWIM LESSONS
