Youth Group Swimming Lessons

"Striving for Excellence"

Our most popular program! The Aquatic Staff at the Patricia G. Mitchell Swim Stadium is eager to start your little ones on their aquatic journey. Teaching them how to swim and be safe around the water is of utmost importance, for swimming is a life-saving skill and a vital tool to preventing drowning- the second leading cause of unintended, injury-related deaths for children ages 1-14. Plus, it makes kids healthier and more confident, builds a foundation for water sports and activities, and is so much fun!

Swim lessons are held twice a week for four weeks on Monday & Wednesday, or Tuesday & Thursday.  Each class lasts approximately 25 minutes between the hours of 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm. 

Don't know which level your child should be in? Pre-testing to be placed in the appropriate level is available upon request. Please contact our office for more information at 323-563-5446.
