Little Nalu Swim Lesson Program (Closed until June 2022)

Welcome to the Livermore Area Recreation and Park District's Little Nalu Swim Lesson Program. As an authorized provider for the American Red Cross, it is our goal to provide the best aquatic training and programs to promote water safety throughout our community in a safe and fun environment. We have partnered with the American Red Cross who have developed and designed a Learn-to-Swim lesson program that we call the "Little Nalu" (Little Waves) Swim Lesson Program. Each class is tailored to the needs of our program participants so they can progress at a comfortable pace with hands-on-instruction from our instructor staff. This program focuses on building skills one step at a time, giving the opportunity to master one element before moving onto the next. Once a participant passes one of our group lesson swim levels, they will receive a certificate of completion as well as a graduation button.

Our Little Nalu swim lesson program is held at the Robert Livermore Aquatics Center with class options in either the morning or the evening. All swim lesson classes are two weeks, meeting Monday through Thursday, with a total of eight (8) twenty-five (25) minute classes. 

If you're not sure which lesson to put your child in, take a look at our Swim Lesson Descriptions . If you have specific questions, please email us at aquatics@larpd.org  or give us a call at  925-373-5750. Swim Lesson Registration will start on Monday, April 19, 2021
