The LifeCenter Plus Learn-to-Swim program is based on Red Cross Levels I through VI. The introductory level begins with getting the child comfortable in the water and building her/his confidence in basic skills. As they progress to the higher levels, children will refine their strokes and build endurance for swimming distances. If you are unsure about your child’s swimming ability, or if you need additional information, call (330) 655-2377, ext. 125.
Due to the high demand for our swim classes, we have implemented a special registration procedure. Parents, please note that registration for swim classes will take place only during the times listed. WE WILL NOT TAKE EARLY REGISTRATIONS. Member-only pre-registrations are held in the Oasis Café.
