Swim levels are determined by the child’s swimming ability.  Beginners are those children who are just at least 5 years old.  The beginners class will consist of kids who cannot perform any swimming strokes, for example the front stroke, back stroke, etc.  Beginners will be focusing on water safety, front float, back float and kicking with a kick board.   Intermediate class will include kids who will be learning their strokes.  They will practice and perform the front stroke and back stroke.   Advanced class will be kids that know their strokes and will focus on mastering the front stroke, back stroke, treading water and diving.   Your child swim level will be adjusted as needed if they are performing at a higher or lower level. 

Private lessons are also offered.  Those classes will be scheduled once the Aquatic center is open for the season.  Private lessons are designed for one on one instruction and are 45 minutes long.  Cost of private lessons are $25 for each 45-minute lesson.   Please contact the pool manager to schedule all private lessons.    

The Carlisle Aquatic Center swimming lessons are not affiliated with the American Red Cross.
