Children's Swim Lessons

We offer 10 levels of swim lesson classes for children of Recreational Sports members as well as non-members. All classes are offered at Cary Street Gym Aquatic Center.

Classes are held year-round in packages of 4, 6 or 8 lesson sessions. All classes are taught by an American Red Cross Water Safety Instructor. Class times might be added or changed based on enrollment.

Parents must remain in the vicinity of the pool deck during swim lessons. Parents may not work out, use the fitness center or other amenities while their children are in swim lessons.
