Red Cross Learn to Swim lessons are offered for residents and non residents.  All levels teach basic water safety and aquatic skills in a logical progression.  The objective is to teach people to swim and be safe in, on and around the water.

What level to sign up for:

We keep records on all participants who have taken swim lessons with us.  If you sign up for the wrong level we may not be able to move your child to the appropriate class.  Please be sure to sign your child up for the correct level so they get the most out of the lessons.  Contact the Recreation office at 860-258-2772 to check on the correct swim level for your child.
