Swimming Lessons

Our program offers year round instruction to give you or your child a great experience in the water. Our American Red Cross (ARC) trained instructors typically teach throughout the year, so you can count on seeing the same high quality instructor at each lesson and session. Pre-requisite for each level is the mastery of skills from the preceding level. Each child is provided with a skill assessment within the first two classes to determine appropriate level placement. It is common for a child to repeat a level before mastering all skills. Adult, Adapted, Private, and Semi-Private lessons are available. Semi-Private lessons must register 2 swimmers of a similar skill level. Lessons may be combined or cancelled in the case of low enrollment. Lessons take place at McGuire Middle School Pool located at 21220 Holyoke Avenue West.

International Water Safety Day, celebrated on May 15th each year, is designed to help spread global awareness of the ongoing drowning pandemic, and to educate youth in becoming safer in and around water. The lack of water safety education has propelled drownings worldwide.

According to the World Health Organization…

  • Every hour, every day, more than 40 people lose their lives to drowning;
  • 372,000 people drown each year, with those under 5 years old at greatest risk;
  • Globally, over half of all drowning deaths are under 25 years old.

The goals for International Water Safety Day are to reduce drowning and water-related fatalities by:

  • Bringing awareness and knowledge on how to be safe in and around aquatic areas.
  • Increasing knowledge and awareness to recognize hazardous environments.
  • Encouraging students to communicate the importance of water safety to their communities, family and friends and share steps they can take to be safer in and around water.
