Preschoolers and youth can spend part of this summer learning to swim or improving the swimming skills they already have through swim lessons being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District at the Roeland Park Aquatic Center, 4850 Rosewood Dr., Roeland Park, and at the Prairie Village Pool at 7710 Delmar, Prairie Village.
These lessons offer a progression of instructional courses which can take a swimmer from basic level skills to pre-swim team skills. This convenient class format also takes the guesswork out of trying to determine what level you or your child should be in. These progressive lessons involve an assessment at the beginning of each daily class and let individuals move through the program at their own pace, learning new skills during the same session.
Swim lessons for preschool and youth all involve eight 30-minute lessons for $60 for Johnson County residents or $66 for nonresidents.
Preschool offerings include a Parent & Tot class for ages six months to two and one-half years with a parent, and an Aqua Tot Class for ages two and one-half to five. Youth classes for ages five and older are generally skill-based and are not age specific. Levels include Novice, Advance Novice, and Intermediate. All of these programs have classes beginning June 3, 8, and 17.
