Red Cross Swim Kids

This program eliminates the possibility of children who are 6 years old learning to swim with preschoolers.  Swimmers learn swimming strokes and build their distance/speed as a component of fitness.  Swimmers will also focus on making safe decisions in, on and around the water. The program consists of 10 levels that allow for ease of progressions and manageable skill acquisition from one level to the next.  Progression is based on the foundation of continuous evaluation and completion of performance criteria in each level.  

For detailed class content, please view the Red Cross Swim Kids Guide.

Block Lessons

Looking to register the whole family at the same time? Wanting to spend one hour at the pool as opposed to extended periods of time while you wait for all your children to finish their lessons? Then this option may be for you!

Lessons are offered in 30 minute, 45 minute and 60 minute blocks dependent on level. When you register, identify what level your children are in and we will then coordinate all children to swim at similar time periods. Red Cross Swim Preschool Sea Otter to Whale, Red Cross Swim Kids Level 1 and 2 are 30 minutes, Swim Kids 3 to 6 are 45 minutes and Swim Kids 7 to 10 are 60 minutes.
