Lakeside Swim Club proudly offers swim lessons based on the American Red Cross Learn to Swim Program. The Learn to Swim Program is designed to teach all those interested in learning to swim, from the Aqua-Tot to the experienced adult. Pre-school and all levels of Children’s Learn to Swim lessons will be offered during each session at each of the times listed. However, participation interest may necessitate a class time or session change for your child.


Ages 3-5 years. This class helps children begin to learn to swim independently. Instructors will teach basic swimming skills such as blowing bubbles, floating and kicking on front and back, freestyle arm strokes and basic safety guidelines. The skills learned from this class will prepare your swimmer for our “Children’s Learn to Swim” program. Classes run for 30 minutes each.


Ages 5 and older. Skills taught range from prone floating to learning all four competitive strokes. We have designed this program around four specific levels. Please indicate the children’s level on the registration form below. Also note, evaluations will take place during the first lesson to determine proper level placement. Your child may be transitioned into another group depending on his/her skill level. Classes will last 45 minutes each.

  • Levels 1 and 2 – Fundamental Aquatic Skills. Students begin by becoming acclimated in the water and learning basic skills such as floating, kicking, and introductory arm strokes. Participants should be comfortable in the water and in a group setting, and have passed the Pre-School class or the equivalent to register for this class.
  • Levels 3 and 4 – Stroke Development. The coordination of the freestyle stroke with rotary breathing is one focus of this group. Other skills to be taught include backstroke, elementary backstroke, treading water and surface diving. Participants must have passed Level 2 or the equivalent prior to registering for this class.


Pre-registration required. Payment must be made within 5 days of online registration in order to secure participant’s place in class (cash or check only).Class space is limited. Participants’ families will be notified of weather-related cancellations. Payments must be paid by cash or check.
