    Whether you spend time on, in or near the water with your family, as a volunteer or as part of your job, our New Jersey water safety training program can complement all that you do. Designed for people of every age and skill level, our water safety classes can not only help you stay safe as you enjoy the great outdoors, but can give you the skills needed to help others during times of crisis.

    For kids, all of our New Jersey swim classes are tailored to the needs of each child. Although some children may advance more quickly or slowly than others in the class, our instructors ensure that everyone receives the right level of training for where they're at. Lessons are available for children ages 6 months and older. Adults or guardians of children under 5 years of age are expected to participate in their kids' swim lessons.

    For adults, New Jersey swim classes from the Red Cross allow you to learn at your own pace and improve your skills under the guidance of a trained instructor. Classes focus on six areas, which include becoming comfortable in the water, basic aquatic skills, stroke development, improvement, and refinement, and swimming and skill proficiency. As you progress through each level you'll hone your technique and become a more confident, capable swimmer.

    Because practice is critical to your success as a swimmer, participants in all of our New Jersey swim classes get access to our free swim app. Designed to complement our Learn-to-Swim program, the app allows you to keep track of your skills, explore water safety topics, and more. It's a fun, free, and easy way to stay motivated and progress to the next level.
