The City of Wheeling offers one of the best learn to swim programs in the Tri-State Area. The cost is a nominal $5.00. Sessions are open to children 3 and older. Each session is scheduled for two weeks (Monday through Friday). We offer classes for beginners to advanced swimming levels. There will also be preschool classes for children 3-5 years (a parent or guardian must accompany child into water). The classes are taught by experienced lifeguards and instructors.
Registration is on the first day of each session anytime between 9-11:30 a.m. A certificate will be given at the completion of the classes.
We have stretched the senior citizen age group a good bit to include everyone 50 and over.

You may swim laps or simply splash or exercise in the water.
