penguin swimmingThe City of Casper is proud to offer American Red Cross swim lessons as well as Mermaid swimming lessons, adaptive and private lessons. 

Registration Information

The American Red Cross has one of the most respected Learn-to-Swim programs in the nation. Mastering swimming skills takes time, practice, and patience. It is not unusual for students to repeat a level several times in order to master the skills required for completion of a comprehensive skills test that must be passed for advancement to the next level. If your child misses the testing day, they will be unable to progress to the next level.

An 3, 6 or 12 month Aquatic Pass entitles you to a discount on class registration fees. The first price listed is the discounted price for Aquatic Members; the second price listed is the fee without an Aquatic Pass. Registration may be completed in person at 1801 East 4th St, by phone with a credit card at (307) 235-8383, by mail, or online at www.activecasper.com. 




Do mermaids exist? You bet and they are here in Casper! Has your little swimmer dreamed of life under the sea?  Enroll in our fin-tastic mermaid classes! Participants will learn the necessary skills to become successful mermaids while increasing their swimming abilities and water safety knowledge. It is the goal of our mermaids to  motivate your children to learn and have fun with different swimming skills and provide a unique swimming experience. Participants must provide their own monofin and tail skin for classes. 

Course Descriptions:
Mermaid Magic - This beginning class will teach mermaid kick, mermaid breaststroke, mermaid dives, water safety knowledge, and be introduced to the first piece of the mermaid tail, the monofin. Participants must have successfully completed Swim Lessons Level 3 (or equivalent) and be at least 6 years old.

Mermaid Fitness - This course is designed for adult participants wanting to learn some of the basic mermaid skills and tricks with a focus on fitness. This course is for participants ages 15+ who are comfortable in deep water.

You are welcome to bring your own monofin and tail, or we will place an order after the first class from FinFun Mermaid Tails. Tails must be paid for before the order is placed.
