Swim Lesson Information 

Registration for 2018 SUMMER PROGRAMS is now open. 
Red Cross Swim Preschool and Swim Kids programs will be offered again this summer, as well as Bronze Level Lifeguarding courses. Current Registered Members can register their children or grandchildren for lessons. Non-members may register for Bronze Level Lifeguarding courses only, space permitting.

To register for Swim Kids 1, children must be able to touch the pool bottom in the shallow end with their chin out of the water. If they are not able to touch, they will be assigned to the Red Cross Swim Preschool program where they must be accompanied by an adult in the water. Progression to Swim Kids 1 is at the discretion of the instructor. 

All other levels can be determined by using the Red Cross Registration Guide. If you are still unsure about what level to register your child in, please speak with the Facility Manager to arrange a swim evaluation before the session begins.
