Thursdays from 7:00-8:30pm
This program is for both recreational and competitive swimmers. Participants must be 18 years+. A swim coach sets workouts for participants to help them with their technique, speed and stroke improvement. Come try it out!

Recreational Swim
This is a free program and everyone is welcome.  Bring your family or friends and have some fun in our pool. We also, encourage adult beginner swimmers to come and practice their swimming skills during Recreational Swim.  However, length swim is not permitted. All swimmers must follow our Admittance Policy.

Parent and Tot Swim
Guardians and their children who are between 6 months and 6 years of age are invited to come out and splash with us in our pool! These are free programs that are funded by Growing Up Healthy Downtown.  We offer two different programs:

  1. Parent and Tot – Instructional: A swim instructor facilitates the class and guardians must accompany their children into the water. Songs, games and basic swimming skills are taught during the class and free time is given for parents and children to explore the water on their own!
  2. Parent and Tot – Aquafit: This class is a great combination of fitness and fun for everyone.  An aquafit instructor will lead the class while your child sits alongside in a flotation seat.   Many of the exercises will be interactive with your child and will get both of you moving!

Red Cross Swim Preschool (4 children to 1 instructor)
A learn-to-swim program for children ages 4 months to 6 years. Lessons are designed to be fun, using lots of songs, games, and themes. We also offer higher levels of instruction for children ages 3 to 5 which build swimming skills and teach age-specific water safety.

Red Cross Swim Kids (6-8 children to 1 instructor)
A learn-to-swim program for children ages 5 and older. The 10-level program helps swimmers develop the five main swimming strokes: front crawl, back crawl, elementary back stroke, breast stroke, and sidestroke which supports learning how to be safe in, on, and around the water. The program also increases fitness and endurance through enjoyable activities. Swim Kids can be taken as part of our After School Program!

Private and Semi-Private
Children and adults are welcome to take our private swim lessons. Red Cross Swim will be taught to children swimmers and adults swimmers will have the opportunity to set swimming goals with their instructor during their first lesson and work towards achieving those goals over the term. Private Lessons are a great way for children to perfect a skill they are having trouble with!

Sharks Swim Team
Join our swim team, The Sharks.  Over each season The Sharks work on variety of drills, complete intense workouts and perfect their flip turns and dives! The Sharks compete in at least one swim meet each season.

Diving is an important skill for your child to accomplish to help them move through their swim levels. During this clinic your child will learn or perfect this skill through drills, practice and games!

Length Swim
Length swim is offered at a variety of different times during the week. Our lanes are divided up by speed. Swimmers can do their laps in the leisure (when permitted), slow, medium or fast lane. Please see our length swim policies on pool etiquette.

Aquafit
Aquafit classes are offered three times a week and are a great way to work out! An instructor leads the class through a warm up, workout and cool down which includes stretching. During the class participants have the option of doing their work out in the shallow or deep end! We supply all aquafit equipment but feel free to bring your own as well.
