American Red Cross Swim Lessons

Help your child learn to swim at an early age. Participants learn about water safety and basic skills to get them swimming independently.  Your child has the opportunity to advance through three swim levels developed for their age group by the American Red Cross.

Children will learn water safety and swimming skills. These classes prepare kids to have independent fun in the water while giving parents peace of mind. Not only do these classes help prepare kids for upcoming water activities such as family trips to the beach, but also leave them with life long swimming skills.

Participants must bring their own towel, and bathing suit. We also encourage everyone to wear water shoes, or sandals to prevent slipping in the locker rooms or on the pool deck.

Missed Lessons & Cancellation Policy

Missed Lessons

Please be aware that because of the nature of our program, slots are limited and there is NO guarantee that a make-up lesson will be provided to a student who misses due to illness or other circumstances, even when advance notice is provided. Participants WILL be charged if they do not show up to a lesson which they were signed up for. Our instructors are paid for their time at the pool, even when you or your swimmer does not show up.

Cancellation Policy

In the event of a cancellation, aquatics management staff must be notified at least 7-days before the session is set to begin. If a participant attempts to cancel within this 7-day period, the amount paid for lessons will NOT be refunded. Group lesson dates are posted several months in advance.  There will be NO REFUNDS for missed lessons, no shows, or if the child/parent is not willing to participate once classes have begun. Our instructors are paid for their time at the pool, even when you or your swimmer does not show up.
