Atholton Swim Club uses the American Red Cross’s Learn-to-Swim curriculum in our Group Swim Classes. The program is based on a logical, six-level progression that helps swimmers about 6+ years old and adults develop their water safety, survival and swimming skills. It is designed to give participants a positive learning experience.

Class sizes are small so instructors can pay special attention to student abilities and needs. There is no minimum age for swim lessons. However, there is a height requirement of approximately 36 inches, to ensure the child can stand in the shallow end comfortably.

Group classes are two weeks long. Sessions run Monday – Friday the first week, and Monday- Thursday the second week. Friday of the second week is used as a make up for inclement weather.

Parents also have the option to pay $20 for sibling slash for the whole session. Please see a lifeguard of manager and they will add you to our sibling splash!

Make up lessons will be scheduled and possibly be at a different time and with different instructor. Red Cross does require us to teach safety curriculum which can be taught in and out of the water. Instructors may include a safety day on an inclement weather day. Please call the pool if you are unsure about the weather.

Parent info: Parents are welcome to watch the lessons, however they are asked to watch from a distance that is not distracting to their child. Please allow the instructors to interact with your swimmer without distraction.
