Learn To Swim
The City of Wheeling offers one of the best Learn-To-Swim programs in the Tri-State area. The cost is a nominal $10 - now that’s a bargain you can’t pass up! Sessions are open to children ages 3 and up. Each session is scheduled to last for two weeks and run Monday - Friday.
We offer classes from beginners to advanced swimming levels. There will also be pre-school classes for children 3 - 5 years old (a parent must accompany child into the water). The classes are taught by qualified Red Cross Water Safety Instructors and lifeguards.
Registration is on the first day of each session anytime between 9:00 A.M. - 11:30 A.M. and a certificate will be given at the completion of the classes.
