The Peterborough Recreation Department offers six levels of American Red Cross swimming lessons throughout the summer along with a Tiny Tots class, an Adaptive Swim class as well as private swimming lessons. Swimming is considered a lifesaving skill. Register your children now so they can attain this skill, which will serve them throughout their lives.
The classes meet Monday through Thursday for two consecutive weeks.* Friday is reserved as the make-up day in case of thunderstorms. Class size is limited, so please register early. There will be the opportunity for your child to be pre-tested on Thursday, June 27th, 4 to 4:30pm.
Level 4 – Must have passed or show competency in Level 3 skills.
Skills: Continue in the development of strokes; introduce the butterfly stroke and surface diving. Class size is limited to 12 kids per class.
All Level 4 lessons are at Adams Pool.
Maximum: 8 children per class.
Cost: Session 1, $24/resident of Peterborough
Session 2 through 4,
$48/session/resident of Peterborough
For siblings of swimming lesson participants: It will cost $5/session (for residents) or $12/session (for non-residents) for siblings of swimming lessons participants to play in the splash pad during the two weeks their sibling is taking lessons. The monies are to be paid to the bathhouse staff and they will keep track up at the pool during the lesson time. This does not apply to 2019 season's pool pass holders.
Our first session of swim lessons will be only one week long from July 1 through 5, with no class on July 4th.
