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: $60
Minimum age of swimmer:
- Preschool Levels 1-3: 4-5 years old
