    The Swim program at L&C offers year-round swimming lessons and water safety instruction for children ages 6 months and up in the heated Olympic-sized pool in the Hatheway Cultural Center.

    Classes are taught by Red Cross certified water safety instructors in the Red Cross approved curriculum for young swimmers. Pool

    Water Babies I and II (for children ages 6 months to 3 years)

    This class promotes water adjustment, not necessarily swimming, for babies and toddlers. A parent or other responsible adult must be present and in the water at all times during the class. 

    Preschool Swim (for children 3 to 5 years)

    Children learn water safety, personal safety, physical and mental adjustments to the water, buoyancy, body position and basic water skills such as front and back floating with a goal of coordinating a beginning crawl and elementary back stroke.

    Swim Levels 1-5 (for children ages 6 and up)

    Children will be skill tested on the first day of class to determine which level they are in. A wide variety of skills will be learned and new skills will be learned and old ones refined as they progress through the levels.

    Swim Level 6 (for children ages 6 and up)

    The objective of Level 6 is to refine strokes so students swim with more ease efficiency, power and smoothness over greater distances. Swimmers will also work on personal water safety, fundamentals of diving, fitness swimming and lifeguard readiness.

    Training programs and clinics in competitive stroke techniques and competitive diving are also offered throughout the year for swimmers age 6 and older who have met Level 6 skill requirements.
