Swim Lessons

Jump in and learn to swim this summer in a safe and friendly environment! Our trained staff will teach swimmers 5 years or older of all levels, according to the standards set by the American Red Cross. The goal of the program is to improve your child’s swimming skills, and boost your child’s self-confidence. Classes will be held outdoors at Kennedy Aquatic Center, Monday - Thursday (Fridays used as make-up day). Class size is limited to 5 students per level. (Due to Covid-19 protocols, parents will be required to stay in the grassed area/ concession area to limit pool deck capacity).
