Splash, Craft, & Safety Class!

Each class will focus on the American Red Cross Whales Tales water safety videos, covering a new topic each day. After watching the video, a safety lesson will be taught reviewing the material covered in the video. For each safety topic, there will be a hands-on craft and or activity that will tie into the lesson each day. Finally, participants will enjoy our newly renovated Splash Pad at the end of each class! This is a wonderful way to bring together FUN and WATER SAFETY all in one. Come and join us for Splash, Craft and Safety Class!

Learn to Swim Group Lessons

The focus of this American Red Cross program is to give participants ages 6 months and up the physical skills and safety knowledge necessary to maximize their enjoyment of the water. Group, private, adult and teen lessons are available.

Please view Where do I place my swimmer? (PDF) to help you determine which class best fits your swimmer's needs.

Note: a participant will not be permitted to participate in a class beyond their skill level regardless of registration. Participants will only be transferred to the appropriate class if space is available. A swim evaluation is the best way to ensure your swimmer is signed up for the correct level. Please call 561-630-1100 to set up an appointment. 

When classes become available, you may register online or at the Burns Road Recreation Center service desk. Please call our aquatic hotline (561-630-1127) for updates on class cancellations due to weather.
