Our group swim lessons are taught by Red Cross certified Water Safety Instructors (WSI) following the Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program.

The Learn-to-Swim program focuses on building skills one step at a time. By giving them the opportunity to master one element before moving on to the next, our kids' swim classes make it easy to build confidence in the water.

During their swim lessons, children will spend time on the following six levels:

  • Level 1: Introduction to Water Skills: Students will learn how to feel comfortable in the water and safely enjoy it.

  • Level 2: Fundamentals of Aquatic Skills: Children will learn basic swimming skills.

  • Level 3: Stroke Development: Additional guided practice will help students improve their skills.

  • Level 4: Stroke Improvement: Kids will gain confidence during swim lessons, improve their stroke and gain additional aquatic skills.

  • Level 5: Stroke Refinement: Guidance allows kids to refine their strokes and become more efficient swimmers.

  • Level 6: Swimming and Skill Proficiency: Students will learn to swim with ease and efficiency, and gain the ability to swim smoothly over greater distances. Swimmers will also have the option to participate in more advanced courses.
