swimminglessons

Vicksburg City Pool will hold registration for the 2017 American Red Cross Learn to Swim program Wednesday May 17 through Friday, May 19 from 10 am – 1 p.m. and Saturday, May 20 from 10 a.m. until 12 noon at City Pool, 900 Lee Street.

Students from 3 years of age through senior citizen are encouraged to register and participate in a two week summer swim session. Cost is $12 per student per session.

 

Throughout the summer, Vicksburg City Pool will offer three sessions.  Each session will contain four courses: three of which will be held in the morning and one in the evening.  The morning courses will include the progressive Levels 1 through 6 and the evening courses will include the Levels classes as well as a class for beginning adults and a 3 and 4 year old preschool class.

 

As in years past, the early 9 a.m. class is reserved for Daycare and Childcare groups, but the 10 and 11 a.m. classes as well as the evening 5:45 p.m. classes are open to the public on a first come first serve basis.

To participate in the 3 and 4 year old Preschool swim class children MUST be 3 years old by the beginning of the class session. 

 

 

 

Students MUST be 5 years-old by the beginning of the session to participate in the Levels classes            

 

Classes are 45 minutes in length and are held Monday – Friday for two weeks.  Two rain days are built into each course schedule.  If more than two classes are cancelled by Vicksburg City Pool per course, for whatever reason, they will be rescheduled.

 

 

 

It is highly recommended that parents interested in the preschool class or Levels 1 or 2 register early on May 17.  These classes fill up quickly.

 

 

 

Due to high demand and in order to reach as many swimmers as possible, students may register for only one course at a time.  If a second course is desired after completion of the first, a student may register at that time.

 

 

 

Registration must be made in person. Payment can be made with either cash or check made payable to the City of Vicksburg. All payments are due at the time of registration.
