To: Young swimmers and their parents

From: T.J. Croco, Pool Director

RE: Red Cross Group Swimming Lessons at the Amana Pool in Middle Amana Again this year we are planning on having two swimming sessions.

Session 1 will be from Monday, June 6 through Friday, June 17.

Session 2 will run from Monday, June 20 through Friday, July 1.


You may register your child for either or both sessions. Each session has 10 scheduled lessons. FORM IS HERE


The first session will have more time slots available.


The cost for either session will be $50 per student.


The price has not changed because of the generosity of the Amana Community Chest. If a parent cannot afford to pay, write or call T.J. Croco at 319-430-9181.

For Session 1 we have planned 4 class times. An 11:15 AM time could be added if warranted.

Session 2 will have 2 and possibly 3 planned class times. Again, a 9:45 AM time could potentially be added for Session 2.


We will be using the 2014, updated Red Cross performance-based classification system (Levels 1- 6). We may have some minor adjustments in classes (i.e. Your student might be asked to attend a class that begins later or earlier.). The first day is always organized chaos. If there is enough interest we will be offering Junior Lifesaving.


Ways to Register: You may send in your registration to TJ Croco, Amana Pool, 3023 220th Trail, Amana, IA 52203 or to


You may call 622-3792 before Wednesday, June 6 and leave a message with your child’s name, phone number, class time, and specific level.


You may also register the first day of each session. We encourage you to pre-register. Again, we may have to adjust class times on the 1st or 2nd day.


Make checks out to CCA Pool.


The Levels are listed: Level 1: Introduction to Water Skills

Level 2: Fundamental Aquatic Skills

Level 3: Stroke Development

Level 4: Stroke Improvement

Level 5: Stroke Refinement

Level 6: Personal Water Safety and/or Fitness Swimmer Possible Junior Lifesaving


Tentative class division times are as follows (Actual class time is about 40 minutes.):

Session 1 12:00-12:40 Levels 1 and 2 and 3 12:45-1:25 Levels 1 and 2 and 3 1:30-2:10 Levels 3 and 4 and 5 2:15-2:55 Levels 4 and 5 and 6 Interest Groups 3:00-3:45

Only if other classes are crowded and we need to advance times (Junior Lifeguarding)

Session 2 10:30-11:10 Levels 1 and 2 11:15-11:55 Levels 3 and 4 12:00-12:40


If enough interest exists Levels 5 and 6 Interest Groups After the first day of class, there may be a time change if there are any problems with enrollment numbers in a given class. We will try and limit the number in a class to about 12 or fewer. We will try to have aides or additional instructors for each of the lower levels.
