Swim Lessons

Swim lessons 2022-

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer swim lessons this summer. Please be sure to check back next fall for the possibility of swim lessons in 2023!

GENEVA offers swim lessons to the community to help children explore, get comfortable in the water, and grow in skill level.

  • Each session meets 8 days (Tuesday-Friday for 2 weeks)
  • All classes are 45 minutes long
  • All lessons are held in GENEVA’s heated, outdoor pool


Determining the appropriate level for your child: Red Cross Guidelines

  • If your child has a Red Cross card from a swimming class which he/she passed, either at GENEVA or elsewhere, please bring it along to the first class.
  • All swimmers are tested on the first day of class to be sure they are in the appropriate level for their ability.
  • Please remember that children often need to take a level more than once in order to pass it.

Cost for 8-day session: To be determined

Minimum age of swimmer:

  • Preschool Levels 1-3: 4-5 years old
  • Level 1-5 swimmers: 6 years old and older
