City of Oakland Parks & Recreation Aquatics

The City of Oakland Aquatics Unit is an authorized provider of American Red Cross Learn to Swim and Water Safety programs. We provide American Red Cross swim courses designed to help people of all ages and varying abilities develop their water safety, survival and swim skills. Swimmers work through age-appropriate levels as they master basic through advanced skills. At the first class meeting, students will be evaluated and placed into the appropriate level class. Courses are divided into the following areas:

PARENT & CHILD AQUATICS (1 – 3 YRS)
Parent swims with child in this instructor led class that emphasizes fun in the water.
LEVEL A: For children with little or no pool experience.
LEVEL B: For children 2-3 yrs old who have completed Level A.

LEARN TO SWIM: PRE-SCHOOL (4 – 5 YRS)
After participation in the Preschool Aquatics, children are able to join the American Red Cross Youth Learn-to-Swim with a solid base of fundamental skills. As children progress through the three levels of Preschool Aquatics and the six levels of Learn-to-Swim, they develop swimming and water safety skills that help them become safer and better swimmers.

LEARN TO SWIM - YOUTH (6+ YRS)
Six comprehensive course levels help swimmers of all ages and abilities develop swimming and water safety skills. Prerequisite for each level is successful demonstration of the skills from the preceding level (except level 1).

YOUTH COMPETITIVE SWIM TEAM (6 – 18 YRS)
The youth recreational swim team program serves as an introduction to competitive swimming. It emphasizes the joy of the sport while maintaining an environment of cooperation. Season concludes with a Citywide Championship Swim Meet. Download Swim League Meet Schedule here.

JUNIOR LIFEGUARD TRAINING (11-15 YRS)
Our Junior Lifeguard Program offers youth the opportunity to learn from professional lifeguards and develop a wide variety of skills and knowledge related to water safety, CPR, first aid, and water rescue techniques. This valuable experience builds leadership, self confidence, and life-long skills.

ADULT LEARN TO SWIM (14+)
This class is for ages 14 years and above. Instruction covers a wide range of activities, and is designed for both non-swimmers and those who desire to improve their swimming skills. No prerequisite swimming skills required.

For over 75 years the City of Oakland has offered safe, fun and affordable swimming programs to meet the diverse needs of our community. Come visit us!
