Parent & Child Aquatics (Ages 6 Months–3 Years) 

American Red Cross Parent and Child Aquatics introduces young children to the water and prepares them to learn to swim. It is not designed to teach children to become good swimmers or to survive in the water on their own. The course gives parents safety information and teaches techniques to help orient their children to the water. It is a bonding experience that will fill the parents and children with wonderful lifelong memories.

Group Lesson Policies:

  1. All DRS, Boilermaker Aquatic Center, and Leisure Pool policies apply when present for lessons.
  2. Group lesson participants must be of appropriate age to participate.
  3. Families are encouraged to use the family changing rooms on level 1 of the CoRec. Please note that children may not enter the opposite genders locker room.
  4. Participants must take a cleansing shower before entering the water.
  5. In order to promote a healthy learning environment, parents are not allowed to sit or stand on the deck near the lessons. Parents are asked to escort their children to the pool deck to meet the instructors then move to the mezzanine to observe lessons. Please do not leave the facility during lessons.
  6. To promote participant success, instructors may move participants to another level if they see fit.
  7. Children are not allowed to use the spa or otherwise participate in recreational use of the pool before or after scheduled lessons outside of weekend hours (starting 5 PM Friday–business close on Sunday).
  8. Please encourage your child to use the restroom before lessons. Accidents in the pool can happen. Incidents can include fecal deposits, vomit, etc. Please discuss with your child the importance of getting to the restroom and not using the pool as a restroom. If an accident occurs, the pool will be evacuated until it is safe for the participants to reenter the water and will most likely result in the lessons being cancelled for the rest of the day.
  9. We understand there will be times when a child is having a difficult day. We would like to resolve any conflicts in a timely manner to avoid any negative effects on the learning environment and to keep your child involved in the lesson. On occasion, it may be necessary to give the child a chance to re-group. Below is the behavior policy:
    • 1st Offense: participant will receive verbal warning from the instructor explaining their inappropriate behavior
    • 2nd Offense: participant will sit out of the lesson for certain amount of time based on the nature of the offense
    • 3rd Offense: participant will be removed from the activity for the remainder of the lesson
    • Steps in the behavior policy can be skipped and a participant maybe be sent directly to the Learn-to-Swim Coordinator if the incident is deemed dangerous to any participants. The Division of Recreational Sports has the right to terminate a participant’s registration (without refund) for any child not abiding by the policies set forth by DRS Learn-to-Swim.
