Swimming Lessons

Weekdays, 10 AM to 1 PM

We are SO excited...!  Beginning this year, we are now an authorized provider
of the American Red Cross (ARC) Learn To Swim program!

When our kids take our lessons, they will potentially pass from one ARC swim level into the next.

Preschool Aquatics Level 2 (Beginner 1)
Helps children start to gain basic swimming propulsive skills to be comfortable in and around water.  Level 2 will work on jumping in, fully submerging and holding breath, back float, swimming on front and back, and treading water using arm and leg actions.  **Swimmers must be out of diapers**
