Swim Classes

Learn to Swim

We offer Preschool swimming and Red Cross lessons from Level 1 to Level 6.  We also have parent and child groups.  Skills will be assessed the first day of class. Before moving on to the next level, all skills must be checked and demonstrated correctly. All classes must have at least 4 participants and no more than 6 per instructor except adult and parent/child classes (if fewer than 4 participants, the length of class is modified).  Sometimes programs with great instructors have to be cancelled due to lack of participation. Please register early to ensure your spot and continuation. All lessons will be taught at Rob Leake City Pool by a qualified swim instructor with lifeguards on deck. No parent will be allowed on the deck during swim lessons.  No refunds.
