The American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program focuses on building skills one step at a time. By giving youths the opportunity to master one element before moving on to the next, our swim classes make it easy for your child to build confidence in the water.
In the Learn-to-Swim program, parents or guardians of children up to 3 years of age will actively participate in their kids' swim lessons. This not only helps increase the child's comfort level in the water, but can help parents understand the process and practice skills with their children between classes.
