VPRD provides swim instruction using the American Red Cross aquatic program* taught by qualified and dedicated instructors. The focus of the program is to teach water safety and swimming skills, using a progressive approach. With the exception of minimum age requirements, enrollment in the listed programs is determined by skill performance, not necessarily age.
*The American Red Cross has revised their Swimming and Water Safety Programs, so your child may need to be placed in a different level than you expect due to modifications in age, skill competency, and expectations. We ask for your cooperation and understanding as we seek to place your child in their best learning environment for safety and skill progression.
SPECIAL NOTE: Participants may only be registered for one section of swim lessons at a time. Registration for consecutive sessions may result in the participant being enrolled in the inappropriate level and the inability to transfer the participant to the appropriate level – refunds/transfers will be subject to a $5 administrative charge.
For all of the current swim lessons being offered please check out the most recent Program Guide on our Programs page.
