We are proud to introduce the Kroc Learn to Swim Program. We follow a progressive curriculum in all of our instructional swimming classes. Each level has three basic components: personal water safety, water comfort, and stroke development. We expect each student to learn and progress at his or her own rate. Our hope is that more people will take advantage of the Kroc Center’s Learn to Swim program to develop competency in swimming, along with confidence and endurance.
