Learn-to-Swim

We are proud to provide the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program to our whole community. Every new swimmer starts with the basics, like becoming comfortable in the water and learning safety and basic strokes, then moves on to stroke development, refinement and improvement while developing ease and efficiency in the water.

Beginner lessons take placed in the Peck Aquatic Center’s ozone-filtered, small teaching pool with depths of 2’6″ – 3’6″ so little swimmers can stand in the water and build their comfort and confidence in the water. Pre-class evaluations for appropriate level placement will be conducted as needed. Swimmers are grouped by age and ability which allows them to learn in a relaxed, non-competitive environment. End-of-the-session report cards keep you informed of your child’s progress.
