Youth Programs

"Physical activity is intellectually stimulating and enhances the learning process and the development of cognitive skills.When young people feel good about themselves they operated more effectively and productively in our communities."


The Parks and Recreation Department offers swim lessons for children aged four and up. Classes teach skills ranging from water adjustment and flotation to locomotion and stroke development along with water safety. Three levels of classes will be offered based on ability level and previous swimming experience.

Whether you need to perfect a cartwheel or work on your back tuck, one of our instructors can help you. Private lessons can be for anyone whose skill level ranges from Beginner to Advanced. Private instruction can enhance skill learning. Doing lessons in a one-on-one learning environment speeds up the learning process, helps those who need individual attention and helps overcome “mental blocks” or other challenges.

Rates for 4 30-minute sessions: Single = $75, Buddy = $55 per student, Trio = $50 per student
