The Kroc Swim Academy

Featuring American Red Cross Swim Lessons

The Kroc Swim Academy takes the water safety skills and developmental progression of traditional Red Cross swim lessons and molds them into a more streamlined, user friendly program. We now offer all levels at the same time to provide more flexibility and have removed age requirements allowing your child to progress based on skill development. The Kroc Swim Team now serves as the capstone for the academy and incorporates the skills traditionally taught in levels 4 and 5.

Not sure what level to sign up for? Give us a call at 208.763.0657 to schedule your free swim assessment. Fridays 3PM or 5:30PM by appointment only.
