Two Rivers HS Classes

TRDemo2010.jpg2014 Classes Cancelled

Unfortunately, lack of available lifeguard staff through the City of Two Rivers Parks and Recreation Department has led to cancellation of the Two Rivers classes and open pool sessions for 2014. Classes are available in Green Bay, Sheboygan and Appleton - check those pages for details.

The Two Rivers NEWP classes are held at the Two River High School from January through March as shown to the right. All classes typically begin with classroom time from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. followed by pool time from 7:30 - 9:00 p.m. Participants must be at least 12 years of age; participants ages 12 - 15 must be accompanied by an adult. Participants will need swim wear, aqua socks or appropriate footwear. A synthetic t-shirt or lightweight neoprene is optional for comfort in the pool. Boats, paddles and all other gear required for the class are provided by the North East Wisconsin Paddlers. Nose clips will be available for a nominal fee.

The Lead Instructor is John Bodwin with support by several other qualified and enthusiastic local instructors. Registration information will be available through the City of Two Rivers Recreation Department. Course fees are $80 for City of Two Rivers residents; $90 for non-residents. Class participants are invited to participate in Student Outings each June. These include both a whitewater paddle trip on the Red River and a Sea Kayak outing on Lake Michigan (conditions permitting).

Open Pool

Open pool dates have also been cancelled unless special arrangements can be made, and will be posted below when available. Please be sure to check the open pool policy on the CLASS page. It is critical that all boats brought into the Two Rivers High School pool are clean, inside and out. Boats that are dirty, or have leaves or other debris in them can not be allowed into the pool.
