American Red cross swimming lessons
Teach America To Swim works with our our partners to staff, train, and facilitate the American Red Cross' curriculum. Please select your state to see where lessons are offered. Program length is location based. However, as per the American Red Cross, each level consists of a minimum of eight, 30-minute lessons. Below, please find more information about the American Red Cross' lesson types.
The American Red Cross offers three lessons types:
Group (10 students)
All lessons can have students ranging in age from 6 months of age to adult. Each lesson provides developmentally appropriate water safety topics and swimming skills. Red Cross Instructors progress students through eight levels of instruction. Each student undergoes an evaluation as he, or she, progresses through each level. Level information is available below.
Semi-Private (4 students)
Semi-private lessons are perfect for students who benefit from more one-on-one time with an instructor.
We strongly recommend private lessons for infants, toddlers and students who may have a fear of the water.
