Early spring 2013 Aquatic classes are held at the Chinquapin Park Recreation Center Pool. The Learn to Swim program provides opportunities for achievement and smooth transitions between levels of instruction. Activities stimulate interest, and motivate students to advance to the next level of swim instruction. Each level addresses topics such as personal safety, rescue skills, diving and diving safety. The Infant and Preschool Aquatic program for ages 6 months - 5 years is designed to let children have fun in the water while developing swimming readiness. We recommend that your child have a physical examination prior to enrollment. For assistance with program placement, call the Aquatics Staff at 703.746.5435
