We offer swimming lessons exclusively for registered BGCO members on Monday and Wednesday evenings. This program is based on the format of the Red Cross Swim Kids program which targets children from ages 6-12.
We have combined the Swim Kids levels into three courses: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced; which allows our members to attend classes on a flexible schedule. Once your child has completed all items from their starting point they will be rolled over into the next level.
See our chart below for the Red Cross Swim Kids equivalency in order to determine the best level for your child. Please contact us to get more information and to register your child for a course!
