Swim Lessons Level 2

This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.

The Kearney Park & Recreation Department is coordinating the summer swim lesson program at Harmon and Centennial Swimming Pools.  The lessons will follow the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim format.  Class registration will be done through KPR by phone, mail, online, or in person at the KPR Office.
Guidelines to know before registering for classes:

  • You may only register your child for one class at a time. Once the class has concluded, you may register for an additional class.

  • Please register at least 3 working days before the start of the class.

  • Class registration cannot be done at the swimming pools.

  • Closely review the “prerequisites” of each class before registering to determine the level your child should be in.

To enter LEVEL 2, students must have passed Level 1 or be able to:

  • Enter independently, using either the ladder, steps or side, travel at least 5 yards, bob 3 times then safely exit the water. (Participants can walk, move along the gutter or “swim.”)

  • Glide on front at least 2 body lengths, roll to a back float for 3 seconds and recover to a vertical position. (This part of the assessment can be performed with support.)

 The American Red Cross Level 2 lessons are the equivalent of Guppies in YMCA lessons.
