Expanded American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim Program
Do you have trouble fitting in swim lessons for your children in your busy Summer schedule? Now you can incorporate your child’s and adult swim lessons into your Summer vacation! As an American Red Cross Authorized Provider, this Summer Smugglers' will once again be offering Red Cross Learn-to-Swim group lessons for ages 3-16 years.

These classes provide instruction to help swimmers develop their swimming and water safety skills. The program is designed to give students a positive learning experience. Learn-to-Swim teaches aquatic and safety skills in a logical progression.
There are six learn-to-swim levels. Each level builds on skills learned in the previous level. Children who have not participated in Red Cross lessons previously will be placed appropriately based on their current swimming skills.

The Learn-to-Swim program will run Monday through Friday and classes will meet in the morning to permit children to participate in Summer Fun University for the rest of the day. Children ages 3-16 years are able to participate in this program. Classes will have a 1 instructor to 6 student teaching ratio. The cost is $80 for the sessions for Levels 1-4 and $115 for Levels 5 & 6.

Our popular Private Swim Instruction Programs for infants and adults, and our Mom & Me, Dad & Me ... Parent and Child Aquatics programs for children under 3 years of age are offered daily this Summer.
