Jump back in!  

Our Jump Back In is a swim lesson refresher course for all swimmers who may not have had lessons since last summer.  The Jump Back In refresher course provides review and maintenance to prepare swimmers of all abilities for summer lessons as well as help parents decide on which level is most appropriate for swimmers to begin their summer swim lessons with the Anoka Aquatic Center.  Jump Back In lessons run for four days from June 13-16. 

Swim Strokeshop!

Our Swim Strokeshop is a swim lesson maintenance course for all swimmers who need to focus on specific strokes. The Swim Strokeshop course provides in-depth focus on the mechanics of specific strokes that swimmers typically get stuck on and pushes them forward to excel in their next lessons with the Anoka Aquatic Center. Swim Strokeshop runs for four days from July 5 - July 8.

Jr. Guard

The Jr. Guard class will run for 4 days during July 5 - July 8. This class will give a preview into the skills and requirements for Lifeguards and give students the opportunity to experience what it takes to become a Lifeguard. Students will practice lifeguard skills including rescues, First Aid, CPR, and AED, though they will not become certified.
