RED

Due to Covid-19 Pandemic our swim lessons are put on hold.  Please see below:

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/parks-rec/aquatic-venues.html

Red level swimmers focus on improving breaststroke and butterfly technique and begin to learn competitive turns and dives. Coaches also incorporate endurance sets that work on kicking, freestyle and backstroke. All classes are 45 minutes long and the coaches are in the water every class but do spend a little bit of each class on deck watching from above the water. To join Reds a swimmer must be able to swim a 50 freestyle with side breathing and a 50 backstroke. 

 

There are two options for Reds:

1) Saturday's - $40/month

               Class time: 10:15 and 11am

2) Monday's & Wednesday's or Tuesday's & Thursday's - $65/month
