Classes and Swim Teams 

 
American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim Classes
Swim lessons are held at Lindley, Peeler, and Warnersville pools during the following sessions:
    Session 1: June 12 to June 30
    Session 2: July 3 to July 21
    Session 3: July 24 to August 11

Each session is three-weeks long with two lessons per week. The cost is $35 per session, per child. Contact the pool of your choice for more information and to register. Or, register more quickly by filling out the registration form before you go to the pool.

We offer three class levels:

Tiny Tots - Ages 3-5
This class introduces and familiarizes children to the aquatic environment and helps them acquire basic aquatic skills. These skills lay the foundation for developing water competency and future skill development of swimming strokes. In addition, the class helps participants begin to develop positive attitudes and safe practices in and around the water.

Beginner - Ages 6-12
This class also introduces and familiarizes children to the aquatic environment and helps them acquire basic aquatic skills. These skills lay the foundation for developing water competency and future skill development of swimming strokes. In addition, the class helps participants begin to develop positive attitudes and safe practices in and around the water.

If participants participate in more than one session during the summer, continued development of water competency and further skill development will be explored, leading to independent aquatic locomotion skills. Children continue to explore the water using simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back to gain greater proficiency in preparation for performing strokes. This class spans Level 1 & 2 of the Learn-to-Swim curriculum.

Intermediate/Advanced - Ages 6-12
This class builds on existing aquatic skills and knowledge. Participants begin to perform skills at a slightly more advanced level. Rudimentary movements like streamlining and the development of a effective freestyle and elementary backstroke are explored. Participants who participate in more than one session or with a more advanced knowledge of basic strokes will explore more advanced aquatic skills such as breast stroke and diving.
