    Swim Lessons

    Bryan Parks and Recreation is proud to partner with the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program – a program that has been teaching swimming and water safety for over 100 years across the country. The LTS program focuses on developing swimming skills in a logical and refined progression that includes not only swimming skills but also teaches participants how to be safe in, on, and around the water. The City of Bryan has been recognized as a Gold Level Learn-to-Swim Provider by the American Red Cross by teaching over 1,200 swim lessons every year.

    We offer swim lessons for ages 3 – adult and for parents with infants ages 6 – 36 months. Each session during the Spring and Summer meets Monday – Friday for 2 weeks. Fall sessions will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays for 5 weeks. We guarantee 8 out of 10 lessons in the event of inclement weather or other factors beyond our control. Parents will receive a parent handbook upon registering for a session. Additional arrangements can be made for special groups by contacting the Bryan Aquatic Center at (979) 209-5222. Registration for each session closes at 5 p.m. on the Thursday before each session starts.
