The Salvation Army Kroc Aquatic Swim lessons have returned! Unless otherwise noted, youth level lessons last 30 minutes and adult level lessons last 45 minutes. Most group lessons are held with a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 6 participants. To register, visit our Welcome Desk or register online.  Note: There will be no refunds after completion of week 1. 

Upcoming Cycle #2
Registration is available beginning April 24, 2022.  Lessons start Wednesday,  May 4, ends Saturday, June 11. Stay tuned for lesson schedule!

Please note: When selecting your lesson, all participants for non-beginner lessons will be tested to assure they are registered for the proper level. Those who do not pass the test will be offered a beginner class (based on availability).

Parent & Child

Our parent and child class introduces children to water safety through activities that include proper water entry, blowing bubbles, front and back kicking, floating, and underwater exploration. Parents provide a safe atmosphere in the water with their children, supporting and encouraging all activities during this 30-minute class. We do require swim diapers for children not toilet trained.

Friday, 6:00pm - 6:30pm

Pre-School Beginner

Children with no previous swimming experience will become independent in the water during this 30-minute session. Our goal is to build each child’s confidence through skills that include basic paddling, kicking, and “face in the water” activities – we’ll also include an introduction to pool safety that may include use of lifejacket fitting and wear.

*This class will not be held on Memorial Day Weekend (5/27 & 28 Friday & Saturday).  Class will be made up June 17th & 18th.

School Age Beginner

Children learn basic stroke mechanics and develop endurance during this 30-minute lesson.  Successful swimmers will perform a front glide (unassisted) and swim partial pool lengths (both front and back) without a flotation device – and we emphasize water safety with all classes!

*This class will not be held on Memorial Day Weekend (5/27 & 28 Friday & Saturday). Class will be made up June 17th & 18th.

School Age Intermediate

Children who can swim a partial pool length without assistance (while demonstrating rotary breathing) will continue to build swimming endurance and confidence through repetition of basic swimming skills.  We will even advance from our water park to our lap pool with this group!  Kroc coaches will work with parents to determine child readiness for this level of instruction.

*This class will not be held on Memorial Day Weekend (5/27 & 28 Friday & Saturday). Class will be made up June 17th & 18th.

Saturday, 11:00am - 11:30am*

Adult Beginner

It’s never too late to learn how to swim!  Are you afraid of the water or never participated in formal training?  Adults will learn to become comfortable in the water and practice basic stroke mechanics (freestyle and backstroke) in this 45-minute lesson – now is a great time to get back to basics!

*This class will not be held on Memorial Day Weekend (5/27 & 28 Friday & Saturday). Class will be made up June 17th & 18th.
