There are four levels of instruction available.
Level one is for the most basic and beginner swimmers and works on comfort in the water, with the ultimate goal of independent doggie paddle.
Level two is an introduction to basic stroke work and water safety. Swimmers in this group must be able to doggie paddle independently.
Level three is an intermediate level that refines basic strokes and water safety.
Level four is an advanced level that focuses on refining all strokes, water safety and some conditioning.
There is a charge for lessons. For more information call (570) 645-5237.
The Lansford Pool is open daily from 12-7 p.m.
