Swimming Lessons

The RA’s Outdoor Pool offers a full range of Red Cross swimming lessons from certified instructors. The swimming lessons are taught in either our large, heated L-shaped pool with a diving section or in our smaller teaching pool with a constant depth of 3.5 feet. Knowing how to swim is a valuable life skill. Not only do Red Cross Swimming Lessons teach swimming, they are fun, promote an active lifestyle, and teach safety skills!
