Swim Lessons

Our American Red Cross swim program creates an ideal environment for children to learn the fundamentals of water safety as well as stroke development and refinement. Participants are given a report card to track their progress and indicate if they are ready to pass on to the next level. Proper swim attire is required. No street clothing is permitted (rashguards are OK), as this inhibits proper movement when learning to swim. 

  • Make-up classes will not be offered. If CVPRD cancels a class, participants will receive a credit for the class.
  • Swim lesson fees do not include admission to the pool for open swim. 
  • Participants should not be in the water before or after class. Participants should wait outside the water until an instructor invites them in to start class. 
  • Please refer to age ranges when enrolling students in lessons.

During the pandemic, instructors will be wearing masks and face shields.
