Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons

Indoor Lesson Through May 22nd, 2017

Description

Sooner or later, everyone realizes the importance of early water safety. The Blue Island Park District offers outdoor swim lessons during the Summer season. Swim lessons are held at our beautiful Memorial Park Pool. Swim lessons are grouped into six (6) different skill levels, starting with the “Jelly Fish” and ending at the “Dolphin” level. Each level will be complimented with different starting times and in some cases, days of the week. Swim lesson students will progressively advance through the American Red Cross Swim Lesson program one level at a time. Students will begin their program in the level that best suits their skill level. By visiting our Registration office, our trained staff will help you decide what level and time is best for your family.
