Learn to swim with the Chicago Park District!
Ages: 6 and up
Participants will be introduced to aquatic activities through water exploration. Individuals will learn basic swimming techniques, advanced breathing techniques and mechanics of the four basic strokes (freestyle, backstroke, butterfly and breaststroke). Participants will be grouped according to skill level.
Note: Due to a high demand, some locations may have to limit the number of classes a participant can register for. Please contact your location before registering for more than one Learn to Swim class in the same session.
