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.

New! 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.
In order to better serve you, please be aware that on the first day of swim registration, we will only be accepting online or in person sign ups. Telephone registrations will not be accepted until the next day. Registration for private swim lessons is available to members and is only accepted online or in person. If you plan on registering online, be sure that you have your log in and password ready. Thank you!
