Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons

Blue Island Park District offers indoor swim lessons during our “Offseason” thanks in part by a partnership with Dwight D. Eisenhower High School in Blue Island, IL. The Blue Island Park District Swim Lesson program follows the American Red Cross Swim curriculum, a trusted name for all things safety. From “Jelly Fish” to “Dolphin,” students progress through six levels as they learn basic water safety, swimming fundamentals and basic skills, six different swim strokes, and personal goal setting. Weekday and weekend classes are available. Additional aquatics programming includes Parent & Child Aquatics, and Preschool Aquatics.
