Having fun in the water can be a blast, but its important to stay safe. Make sure your kids are prepared for the lake, the beach, or their friends pool party by getting registered for swim lessons. Whether you are only in, on and around the water in the summer, or you hit the pool, lake or ocean all year long, knowing how to handle yourself in the water – and help those in need – will make it a safer, more enjoyable experience for everyone. That's why, year-round swimming and water safety classes are available at aquatic facilities across the country. Designed for those ages six months to adult, Red Cross swim lessons help set the stage for a lifetime of water safety by equipping you with the knowledge and skills needed to help you and your loved ones swim safely and with confidence.
