Learn to Swim Registration

Session 3: Thomas Jefferson Pool Learn to Swim: Children

The best thing a parent can do this summer is enroll their child in a Parks Learn to Swim class. We offer two levels of aquatics training for your child. Please choose the level that is most appropriate for your child based upon the description of the aquatic skills taught in that level. Your child must be 6 years of age on the first day of class in order to participate in the children’s program. You must bring a copy of your child’s birth certificate or an equivalent document on the day of the first class to show proof of age.

Dates: from 08/07/2019 until 08/19/2019

Description: Children at this level are learning basic aquatic skills. They’ll learn how to safely get into and leave the water, how to control their breath by blowing bubbles, how to float and kick on front and back and move through the water. They’ll also learn how to stay safe around the water, and what to do in case of an emergency.
