Swimming Lessons

A swim instructor coaches a young swimmer in the backstroke.

Montgomery County Parks and Recreation's swimming lessons are American Red Cross Certified. Lessons are designed to help the participant grow as a swimmer, and learn competence in the water. Swimming is a great way to stay in shape and encourages sportsmanship and strong character. Swimming lessons are offered when the Frog Pond Pool is open during the summer months.
