The 2014 swim season is almost here! Looking to learn to swim or improve your skills? Now is the time! All classes are taught by American Red Cross certified instructors.
Instructors will offer a safe, educational, fun environment for your child. As students progress the level of instruction will become more challenging.
Lessons are offered ages 3 and up and are customized to meet each participant’s needs and skill level. Children under 3 can be accommodated, but are introduced to basic skills such as kicking, floating, gliding and arm movements with a focus on water adjustment only. It is requested that parents or guardian observe the lessons from the upper deck to avoid distracting the student.
Students must bring a towel, sunscreen, goggles and their favorite water toy.
Lessons begin March 17 and will be offered through mid-October. March-May classes will only be held at the Waterfront Park in the heated pool. Once the other facilities are open and pool temperatures maintain 80 degrees classes will no longer be held in the “Adult Pool” but will be available at all three facilities to include the Swim Park, Waterfront Park and Creekside Park.
Registrations are taken at the Waterfront Park and lessons must be paid in full at time of registration. A swim lesson registration form must be completed for each swimmer.
