Swim Lessons


Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation Department offers a variety of programs for persons six months of age and older. The aqua-tot and preschool programs were designed by professional staff to provide the best opportunity for individuals to reach their potential. The American Red Cross program is utilized for Level 1 thru Level 6 classes. All instructors must complete an extensive training program designed by American Red Cross professionals. Our instructors are sensitive to the apprehensions and fears of the beginner swimmer yet seek to challenge and stimulate the more advanced swimmer. There is a class designed for everyone with a desire to improve their swimming ability.
