Ridgefield Parks & Recreation offers American Red Cross swim lesson programs. Everyone can learn to swim in a safe and comfortable environment. Lessons begin by helping students adjust to the water and as ability increases, students will learn essential skills and stroke development.
• Parent & Child (PACA) for children ages 6-48 months
• Preschool Aquatics for children ages 4-5
• Learn to Swim for children ages 6-12
• Adult lessons for everyone ages 13+
Private lessons are available exclusively to members (ages 3+). You may become a member at the time of registration. Private swim lessons are not available in the summer.

Parent Observation Week
During the first week of swim lessons, parents are welcome to stay and observe their child’s class. Otherwise, parents are asked to please wait outside the pool area behind the glass in the observation area. You are invited to meet and greet your child’s instructor during the first week of class. If you have another child in recreation swim (not in a lesson), we ask that parents stay on the pool deck for children ages 12 and under.
