Learn to Swim-Swim Lessons

The six levels of Learn-to-Swim Instruction help swimmers of all ages and varying abilities develop their swimming and water safety skills. Participants entering Levels 2-6 must either have a Level Certificate from the previous level, or be able to demonstrate all the completion requirements of the previous level. As the levels go up, so do the number and complexity of required skills for the student to learn. To have the time to successfully learn all skills, some students may need to repeat any particular level two or three times. If you have any questions, contact the Montrose Recreation District office at 249-7705. All Parent and Child through Level 6 Swim Courses - $46. Not all courses are available each session time. Please check the schedule for specific course sessions and times.
