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.
