American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim Lessons

Check back in May 2022 for our Summer 2022 information!

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 Phil’s Beach, 328 N. Main Street, by certified lifeguards.

The prerequisite for each level is the successful demonstration of skills and meeting minimum age requirements. If unsure of your child’s swim level, register them for the class that fits the minimum age. 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. Red Cross certificate is issued at the successful completion of each skill level.

The beach is closed during morning swim lesson. Classes may be observed from the plaza area at Phil’s Beach. At the completion of both morning and afternoon lessons, parents and students must leave the beach area immediately unless they possess a beach pass or pay the daily rate.
