    lifeguards conduct swim lessons for kids

    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.

    Water Safety

    Bryan Parks & Recreation’s water safety campaign helps inform the public about water safety and increase safety at our facilities.

    Drowning is the number one cause of death for children under the age of 4 and is the third leading cause of death among children under age 14. It occurs quickly and silently; 88% of drowning victims were under some sort of supervision at the time of the incident and 75% of victims were missing for under 5 minutes.

    Formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% for children aged 1 to 4 years. Bryan Parks & Recreation is proud to partner with the Aquatic Safety Group’s National Note & Float™ Water Safety Campaign to offer life jackets to patrons using our facilities. This program targets parents with children who cannot swim.

    The heart of the program is first identifying all non-swimmers who enter the facility, and then floating those swimmers in an appropriately sized life jacket. As a part of this program, water wings or “arm floaties” are not allowed at our aquatics facilities. Only U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation devices will be allowed to be worn in the pools.

    The program follows six simple steps:

    1. ALL non-swimmers must check in at the facility with a parent/guardian before or when entering the facility.
    2. Parents/guardians and non-swimming children should receive written and verbal site-specific water safety instructions along with “learn to swim” information.
    3. Parents/guardians will be advised to supervise their children and keep them within arm’s reach.
    4. Non-swimmers age 7 and younger (or less than 48 inches tall) must wear a clearly identifiable wristband and a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket, Type III, and remain in designated shallow water areas. They must also be within arm’s reach of a parent/guardian (at least 18 years of age) who is in the water with the child.
    5. Non-swimmers ages 8 through 12 must wear a clearly identifiable wristband and a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket, Type III, and must be actively supervised by a swimming parent/guardian (at least 18 years of age).
    6. Anyone who wishes to access deep water (greater than five feet deep) must pass the facility swim test or wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved Life jacket, Type III.

    Note & Float

    The City of Bryan’s Note & Float Program will follow a “traffic light” system defined as follows:

    Red – Stop!

    Swimmers in this designation must have a parent in the water within arm’s reach at all times and must be in a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket at all times in the pool and on the pool deck. If you see a child with a red wristband unattended, please notify a lifeguard immediately.

    Yellow – Caution!

    Swimmers can be in the water without a parent and can dog paddle and/or float on their own, but they are not yet ready for deep water or to go down the slide. If you see a child with a yellow wristband headed toward deep water, please notify a lifeguard immediately.

    Green – Go!

    Swimmer has passed the facility swim test and is able to access all areas of the pool.
    If a lifeguard must enter the water to perform a rescue on an individual, the person will be noted with a red wristband and floated in an appropriately sized life jacket if available.
