Classes cost $150 payable to EAC.
Students must be able to demonstrate swimming competency by swimming 300yds in both freestyle and breaststroke, retrieve an object off of the bottom of the pool in a depth of 10ft, and tread water for 2 minutes. Those who are unable to complete the pre-reqs will not be able to take the course and will be refunded their money.
You must be 15 years old before the last day of class. Age verification is required in the form of a state issued id card or a birth certificate.
Both! This course will be a blended online course. Students can view lessons online here.
Note: If you have created an account through the American Red Cross in the past, you will need to do it again. Printed verification that lessons have been completed will be required, and due on the first day of class.
You can sign up for the current month of lessons at any time during the month as long as there is still space available for your child. We typically open registration for the public on the 2nd to last Friday of each month.
We charge $9.00 per class, but you would pay for the entire month of classes.
Example: If you sign up for classes on M/W and there are 4 Mondays and 5 Wednesdays, that would total out to be 9 classes. $9.00 multiplied by 9 classes would be $81.00.
Each month is a little different based on what the month looks like.
We do offer a scholarship for any child with a Medicaid card from DSHS is eligible for our scholarship. With the scholarship, you would only pay $5 per class for each child. Just bring your card in when you register for classes and we can provide you with the scholarship.
Our classes are 30 minutes long. The only exception is our Pre-Composition class and that is 45 minutes.
Our preschool classes are for children between the ages of 3 and 5. Our beginner classes are for children between the ages of 6 and 14. We also offer parent-tot class for children between the ages of 6 months and 3 years old.

Yes. We offer them typically during the week, for ages 15 and up.

Each individual is completely different! Learning how to swim takes time. You/your child's progress will depend on your goals, comfort in the water, and a variety of other factors. You shouldn't be surprised if your child is in the same level for 6 months to a year. In our program we emphasize correct technique in combination with comfort and endurance in the water. Mastering this combination takes time.
No worries! Bring your child in for a pre-test and we can tell you what level they should go into. These test are free and take less than 5 minutes. We usually do these at 4:15pm/7:00pm, Monday-Thursday, or 10:15am/12:30pm, Saturdays. If these times don't work for you, give us a call and we may be able to set something up outside of that.
Report cards are handed out the second to last class of the month. Your child's report card will list all the skills that are assessed and taught. Skills that your child has shown profiencency in will be checked. If you want to know early if your child has passed, please ask their instructor after class. If the instructor is unavailable, please ask management.
Nope! Our water exercise classes are in both in either the deep or shallow end of the pool. No swimming required!
There is no need to sign up for our water exercise classes. Your first visit is free, so come on in and check it out completely risk free. All classes are offered on a drop in basis.
Your first visit is free! After that you can drop in for either $6 for adults or $5 for seniors. Otherwise you can purchase a punch card that is good for 10 visits. Adult punch cards are $55 and senior punch cards are $45.
Our starting age is 55 to get the senior rate.
Yes! Workouts in the water are great for anyone and everyone. Our instructors are flexible and understanding of your needs. We are not here to be drill sergeants, but are here to support your exercise goals. Classes are completely self paced and instructors will provide alternative exercises to those who are unable to do all of the moves in class. Workouts in the water are gentle on the body making it a perfect option for those who are new to exercising or are recovering from injuries (Always consult your doctor before joining a class.)
Please talk with your DDA case manager prior to coming to the pool. Between the client and the case manager they will decide which program is going to be best for them. If a support staff is needed, classes such as water exercise would be a good option where we will have staff in the water instead of a support staff.
Case Managers can contact: Nicole Nikula via Email: email@example.com
