Swim Lessons

Swimming is a life-long skill that is not only fun and good exercise – it can save your life. The American Red Cross has developed swimming lessons for kids and adults that allow everyone the opportunity to learn in a safe environment, at their own pace. Classes are taught by certified, knowledgeable, and caring instructors who can help swimmers at every level and ability feel comfortable in the water and progress to the next level.
