Swim Lessons & Swim Team

Here at the Fitness Center, we have an amazing group of instructors that are able to tailor lessons to each individual student’s needs. We offer American Red Cross Swim Lessons in both a group and individual setting, for all ages across the board. Swimming lessons provide children an opportunity to explore the water, practice and develop their skills, and learn how to be safe in and around the water in a safe and supportive environment. We pride ourselves in offering quality lessons to not only residents of Cresco, but to those in the surrounding communities.

Private swimming lessons will be offered year-round, with May through August having the most offerings. Public lessons will only be offered specific times in June, July, and August. We also offer adult lessons – please inquire at the desk if interested.

Age Guidelines:

It is advised that students in level 1 be 5 years old, able to jump in from the side unassisted, fully submerge their head and hold their breath, and be ready to float independently.

Little Swimmer (LS) – Geared towards pre-school aged 3 & 4 year-olds who have the ability to independently stay in the water with the instruct and readily allow water to be splashed on their face.

Ages listed are a guideline – age DOES NOT equal ability, the learning progression is age-related, not age-determined.
