Youth Water Activities

Parent-Child Swim Classes

In the Parent/Child aquatic program, skills are taught to make both children and parents comfortable in the water together.  Under the direction of trained staff, parents learn how to develop their child’s strength and confidence in the water, while maintaining a safe swimming environment.  Infant aquatic classes are a fun, special time for parents to interact with their children and with each other.
