Looking to learn to swim or improve your skills? The 2013 Swim Season is here! All classes will be taught by Red Cross Certified Instructors.
Instructors will offer a safe, educational and fun environment for your child. As students progress the level of instruction will become more challenging.
Lessons are offered for ages 3 and up, and 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 guardians 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 will begin the first week of March 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 reach 80 degrees, classes will no longer be held in the “Adult Pool,” but will be available at all 3 facilities to include 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 form must be completed for each swimmer.
