Learn to Swim

February 18, 2018

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 classes are 40 minutes and focus on specific skills. Learn to swim classes will target children ages 6 & up and your child will be placed in the level which best meets & challenges his or her ability.

*This class familiarizes young children (minimum age requirement 6months to 3yrs) to the water and serves as a precursor to either the ARC Preschool Aquatics or Learn to Swim courses. Parent and Child Aquatics gives parents safety information and techniques to help orient their children to the water. It is not designed to teach children to become good swimmers or to survive in the water on their own. A parent or responsible adult is required to accompany the child in the pool for this 30minute class.


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.
