lessons at Percival Pool.
You can only register for one session of swim lessons at a time. You can either register for day lessons or evening lessons
but not for both. All lessons are free as part of the Household 2015 pool pass which participants must register for in order
to take swim lessons. As a result of testing of some participants to see what class they should participate in, there will be
some movement of participants from one level to another. Parent & Child Aquatics, Preschool Aquatics, and Learn-to-
Swim (LTS) classes where age will apply are determined by the first day of class, per session. All participants in Parent &
Child Aquatics must be 6 months by the first day of class. All participants in Preschool Aquatics must be 4 years by the
first day of class. All participants in Learn-to-Swim classes must be 6 years old. Please note for the first session, classes

Please note: The American Red Cross Parent and Child Aquatics help young children (6 months through 3 years) become
comfortable in and around the water so they are ready to learn to swim. It is not designed to teach children to become
good swimmers or even to survive in the water on their own. Parent and Child Aquatics gives parents information and
techniques to help orient their children to the water and to supervise water activities in a safe manner. 1. Level 1 is for
children who are 6 months to 3 years old and have either no water experience or one previous session of water adjustment
lessons. 2. Level 2 is for children who: Are 6 months to 3 years old and have passed Parent and Child Aquatics Level 1.
Parents must accompany their child in the water for Level 1 & 2 Aquatics. The American Red Cross Preschool Aquatics
consists of three levels, this program helps children ages 4 and 5 years old. The primary objective of Preschool Aquatics is
to promote the developmentally appropriate learning of fundamental water safety and aquatic skills. Learn-to-Swim (LTS)
