Swim Classes

The Red Cross has established swim lessons for kids and adults that allow everyone the opportunity to learn in a safe environment, at their own pace. The Learn-to-Swim Program focuses on building skills one step at a time. By giving participants the opportunity to master one element before advancing on to the next, our swim classes make it easy to build confidence in the water. There are five levels in this program that offer a wide variety of activities. Skills taught include: personal safety, rescue skills, diving skills, and stroke skills. Each level is designed to stimulate interest and motivate students to advance to the next section.

Classes are held year-round at our indoor pools at Central Queens, Bayside High School, and now in Jamaica Hills (centrally located and accessible by highway and public transportation).
