American Red Cross Water Safety Instructor

We are proud to offer the new American Red Cross Swimming and Water Safety program! This program, developed in concert with USA Swimming and USA Diving offers a structured program based upon a child's developmental abilities. The newly released program includes not only basic swimming training, but also water safety education designed at teaching participants how to safely recreate in, on and around the water.

This course is not designed to teach you basic-level swimming skills. It is dedicated to developing the knowledge and skills you will need to plan and teach courses in the American Red Cross Swimming and Water Safety program. To enroll, participants must be at least 16 years of age, and must pass a precourse skills assessment consisting of a 25 yard swim using each of the following strokes:

  • Crawl Stroke
  • Back Crawl
  • Breaststroke
  • Sidestroke
  • Elementary Backstroke
  • Butterfly
