Make a splash with Ray and Karen Meinelschmidt and our Swimming and Water Safety Program! Build skills and confidence with Youth Swimming Lessons. Our comprehensive course levels teach participants how to swim skillfully and safely. Our water safety instructors are thoroughly trained, so swimmers of all ages and abilities are in good hands. Participants in advanced levels will learn a variety of strokes and will also be introduced to a wide range of personal safety skills and diving techniques. Courses are fun and interactive with hands-on/in-water training. We welcome parents, siblings and guests to watch their children’s lessons from designated areas outside the fenced facility. This enables us to provide safe, quality lessons to your children in an environment free of distractions. Long hair should be held back from the face by cap, bands or clips. Your cooperation is appreciated. We have associated each class level with a sea creature for your reference. When you arrive at your class time, your instructor will be displaying your sea creature. Our sea creature titles are unique to Washington County Recreation Department class levels.
