Westonka/American Red Cross-affiliated Swimming Lessons
We have adapted the American Red Cross program and customized it to fit Westonka Community Education & Services' needs best. It is a comprehensive and developmentally appropriate swim program that teaches all ages how to swim skillfully and safely. The prerequisite for each level is determined by age and successful demonstration of skills from the preceding level. Each level also includes water safety. Each class will begin with a brief skill assessment to ensure that everyone is enrolled in the appropriate level. All students must be able to perform the exit skills prior to moving to the next level. All of our instructors are certified through the American Red Cross. All classes are held at the Mound Westonka High School Pool - please enter through the Westonka Activity Center.
Swimming and Skill Proficiency: Mighty Hawks Black

Prerequisite: successful completion of Mighty Hawks Red. The objective of this level is to refine strokes so participants swim them with more ease, efficiency, power and smoothness and over greater distances. This level will also focus on preparing participants for more advanced courses such as the Water Safety Instructor or competitive swimming. Exit skills: swim 550 yards continuously using any three strokes of your choice, swimming at least 50 yards of each stroke. Jump into deep water, perform a survival float for five minutes, roll onto back and perform a back float for five minutes.
