Group Swim Lessons
Why our curriculum works!
The Byron Park District's swim lesson curriculum combines expertise from the American Red Cross, Swim Lesson University, World Aquatic Babies & Children Network and USA Swimming Agencies. This curriculum has a greater focus on earlier progression of the front crawl stroke utilizing in-line body positioning (face in water) with a delayed focus on the backstroke. Plus, all instructors complete a comprehensive child-centered training program, in which they learn the progressions of each stroke and interactive teaching techniques!
A new session of swim lessons will be held Sundays, January 15 - March 12*. Times and fees vary by class. Register early as classes fill quickly.
*There will be no lessons February 5
