The DeKalb Park District is proud to be an authorized provider of the six-level American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program. The program is designed for children age 6 and up, and students progress through the levels at their own pace, mastering the skills in one level before advancing to the next. Each level of Learn-to-Swim classes include training in basic water safety and helping others in an emergency, in addition to stroke development. We are offering a modified version of our Learn-to-Swim programs for ages 3+ and Levels 1 - 4, with Phase 4 safety modifications.
Level 1: Introduction to Water Skills
Level 2: Fundamental Aquatic Skills
Level 3: Stroke Development
Level 4: Stroke Improvement

Week-long lessons follow a research-based curriculum that allows students to progress through the levels at their own pace, mastering the skills in one level before advancing to the next. Classes are divided into groups based on ability and completion of prerequisites.
Private Lessons are not being offered at this time.
One-on-one instruction is provided for children and adults. Semi-private lessons are offered for students at the same skill level that wish to share the instructor. Students may work on the skills from the group lessons or other specific skills as desired.
