Children's Swim Lessons

VCU RecWell offers children’s swim lessons for participants ages 6 months through 6 years. Lessons are taught by our certified Water Safety Instructors and follow the American Red Cross Swimming & Water Safety program.

Our instructors will work with participants to build fundamental swimming and water safety skills throughout the lessons. Participants will learn the basic skills to stay afloat and move through the water. Instructors will provide hands-on support as needed, based on the participant’s comfort and ability in the water.
