Swim Lessons/Youth Classes

Splash, Craft, & Safety Class!

Each class will focus on the American Red Cross Whales Tales water safety videos, covering a new topic each day. After watching the video, a safety lesson will be taught reviewing the material covered in the video. For each safety topic, there will be a hands-on craft and or activity that will tie into the lesson each day. Finally, participants will enjoy our newly renovated Splash Pad at the end of each class! This is a wonderful way to bring together FUN and WATER SAFETY all in one. Come and join us for Splash, Craft and Safety Class!

Note: a participant will not be permitted to participate in a class beyond their skill level regardless of registration. Participants will only be transferred to the appropriate class if space is available. A swim evaluation is the best way to ensure your swimmer is signed up for the correct level. Please call 561-630-1100 to set up an appointment.
