Niles Park District is excited to offer our Learn to Swim lesson program.  This program is designed for children of all ages and abilities.  Students work toward the development of five core swim competencies.  Aregisterbutton npd 110s they progress, they will be one step closer in becoming a profecient swimmer.  The levels are used to divide students into broad ability groups.  Children progress at individual rates with the opportunity to learn the core swimming skills and progress to advanced strokes.  Learning is self-paced but challenging.  Please read the level descriptions and sign up your student for the lowest level that teaches the skill your child needs assistance in.  If inclement weather cancels a lesson Monday thru Thursday, a make-up will be offered at the same time on Friday of that week.  No lessons July 1-4.

Please have your child come with a swimsuit, towel, goggles, and a swim diaper if necessary.  The swim lesson coordinator holds the right to switch swimmers into the appropriate level if they do not meet the pre-requisite skills.
