Learn to Swim


American Red Cross at the BAC

These classes teach children aquatic and safety skills in a logical progression. Our objective is to teach children how to swim as well as how to be safe in and around the water. All preschool classes are 30 minutes and are geared for children ages 3-6 years old.  All Learn to swim classes are 30 mins and are geared for children over 6 years old. Children will be placed in the class that best meets and challenges their ability.

Parent/ Tot Time is a 45 minute family swim session geared for parents with infants and/or toddlers ages 6months-3 years.  A parent is required to be in the water with their child/children at all times. Unlike other family swim sessions offered at the BAC, pre-registeration is required in order to attend the Parent/ Tot Time Family Swim. Walk-ins are not allowed. If interested please call soon to register since spaces are limited.

**A family swim make-up pass will be issued upon request in the event you were absent from a Swim Class or Parent/Tot Time during the course of the session.

It cannot be overemphasized that participation in any swim lesson program will not drown proof your child. It is only the first step in developing your child’s water safety and swimming skills. Year round practice, regular exposure to water, and positive encouragement are the tools needed for developing your child’s comfort level in the water and improving his or her swimming skills.
