Ages/Life Stage:

Children & Youth, Ages 6-12




This program is intended to teach children to be safe and comfortable in the water.  They do not gain a level certificate, but instructors will assess participants and let parents/caregivers know what level their child could enter if they choose to do so. A program facilitator, swim instructors and volunteers will assist children in the pool.
