Summer Swim Lessons - Outdoor
We accept swimmers of all levels! Please see the American Red Cross swim level chart in the additional forms link below to determine where you fit best. Classes are 30 minutes in length for three weeks. Thunder and Lightning is a hazard for both indoor and outdoor lessons. In the event of such weather, the water safety instructors will hold “out of water” lessons that contain important information that your child must know (why people drown”, basic water safety, accident prevention, water hazards, and using the buddy system).
Registration for Session Two is July 19-25.
Registration is on a first-come/first-serve basis.
ALL LEVEL 1 AND 2 LESSONS WILL REQUIRE A GUARDIAN IN THE WATER TO HELP SUPPORT THEIR SWIMMER - This is due to regulations, instructors are not allowed to come in contact with any participant. Thank you for your understanding.
Only one guardian will be allowed into the swim area if they are helping their swimmer with instruction. Siblings or other family members will not be allowed in the water where lessons are taking place. You may use social distancing on the waterfront and picnic areas.
All level 3 participants must bring their own pool noodle.
