Learn to swim in District 196 Community Swim Lessons. Our caring and dedicated instructors are Red Cross-trained to help you and your child enjoy developing swimming and water safety skills in our positive learning environment. Community Swim Lessons are offered for children ages six months and older, teens and adults. Lessons are also available in formats for youth with special needs and in a women-only format.

May is water safety month!
Take the pledge to make sure your family is safer around water. Pledge that you will designate a water watcher every single time children in your care are in or near the water. Make sure your kids know how to swim. As a parent or guardian, learn CPR. Always remove portable pool ladders when not in use. Ensure all permanent pools have a proper fence and gate and safer drain covers.
