American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim Lessons

The American Red Cross offers five comprehensive levels that teach you, your child, or other family members how to swim skillfully and safely. Each level of learn-to-swim also includes training in basic water safety and helping a swimmer in distress. All lessons are taught at Beach Park, located at 112 Park Street, by our certified life guarding staff.

The prerequisite for each level is successful demonstration of skills and meeting minimum age requirements.  If unsure of your child’s swim level register them for the class fits the age minimum. Skill assessments will be completed on the first day of class and any adjustment will be made at that time. The first rain out will be used as a safety day and class will be held for all levels but Minnow. If another rain out occurs, the class will be made up on Friday of the same week the class was missed. Red Cross certificate will be issued at the successful completion of each skill level.

Please Note: The beach is closed to the public during morning swim lessons.
All persons welcome to observe classes, but must do so from behind the fence line or from inside the beach house.
At the completion of both morning and afternoon lessons, parents and students must leave the beach area immediately unless they are 2018 Beach Pass holders, or pay the daily fee for admission.
