The focus of this American Red Cross program is to give participants ages 6 months and up the physical skills and safety knowledge necessary to maximize their enjoyment of the water. Group, private, adult and teen lessons are available. 

Please view 
Where do I place my swimmer? (PDF) to help you determine which class best fits your swimmer's needs.

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. 

Please call our aquatic hotline (561-630-1127) for updates on class cancellations due to weather.
