Swim Lessons

Parent & Tot Swim Lessons
Parents introduce your child to the water and help him/her develop a positive relationship at an early age. With the aid of games and toys, your infant/tot will develop a comfort level in and around the water as well as a readiness
for learning to swim. Skills introduced include blowing bubbles, kicking, and jumping in. The adult does not need to know how to swim. Note: There will be one water safety class held inside of the Aquatic park facility, if there is poor weather on the day of your scheduled class. If there is a second day of poor weather on your scheduled class day, that class will be made-up on Friday.


Preschool Aquatics
The primary objective of Preschool Aquatics is to promote the developmentally appropriate learning of
fundamental water safety and aquatic skills by young children 4 to 5 years of age. All preschool swim lessons are 2 weeks (8 classes) long and are taught according to American Red Cross guidelines. In the event that a class does not fill, participants will be accommodated to a level which best fits their needs. Participants in the swim lessons may be moved to a higher or lower class level to best fit their needs at an instructor’s recommendation. Note: There will be one water safety class held inside of the Aquatic Park facility, if there is poor weather on the day of your scheduled class. If there is a second day of poor weather on your schedule class day that class will be made up on Friday.
