The Parks and Recreation Department follows the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim Program. Lessons are for all ages. It's a progressive program with 6 levels, each with specific skill requirements. 

*If your child has taken lessons with us previously, please reference their most recent Achievement Card for the appropriate level. If not, please reference the American Red Cross Swim & Water Safety Level Requirements to choose the appropriate level based on their skills. 
American Red Cross Swim & Water Safety Level Requirements


Once the session begins, registration for that session will no longer be available.

All participants arrive and leave in their bathing suits. For spectators: Masked and 6 foot social distancing are encouraged but not required. Swimmers should not wear a mask.

Due to popular demand, we are limiting registration and waitlists to one class per child per week. If your child becomes waitlisted for a level and a spot becomes available, an e-mail notification from Glastonbury Parks and Recreation will be sent to you and payment must be made within 2 business days. Be sure to check your account regularly. 

Infant/Toddler: Ages 6 moths-3 years with a parent/guardian in the water
Tots: Ages 3 and 4 years with parents in the water; parents work with their children to learn breath control, submerging in the water, buoyancy /floating on the water; and moving through the water on front and back.
Level 0: Age 4 at Addison Pool only. 4 year olds without the parent/guardian.
