Children's Learn to Swim Classes

PARENT AND ME
Ages 4 months -18 months or 1.5 -3.5 years
The Parent and Me class is a child's first structured aquatic experience. This class is designed to introduce your child to the aquatic environment and ensure comfort and safety. Children will develop their water-based motor skills such as breath control, kicking, bobbing and floating, and will learn to enjoy being in the water. Course goals include learning comfort in the water, an introduction of breath control and breathing patterns, submersion in water and combining body movement skills such as kicking, reaching, grabbing, and arm movement.

BEGINNER 1
Separate groups for ages 3-5, 5-8, 9-14
This is our entry level course helps students feel comfortable in the water and enjoy the water safety intended for children with limited experience in the water, or those young swimmers who are comfortable in the water, but are still unable to swim continuously.
 Goals include blowing bubbles with comfortable submersion, head immersion, jumping in and climbing out of water, back and front float with help, freestyle and back kick with help and basics of swimming strokes (freestyle and backstroke with support.)

BEGINNER 2
Separate groups for ages 3-5, 5-8, 9-14
This is the second phase of our entry level course that is intended for children with limited experience in the water. Goals include jumping in and climbing out of water, blowing bubbles with comfortable submersion, head immersion, flutter kick for 15 yards front and back, freestyle swim and backstroke swim for 15 yards without support. Tread water for 15 seconds.

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL
Separate groups for ages 5-8, 9-14
Builds on the skills in level beginner 2 by providing additional guided practice
Students are introduced to the butterfly and breaststroke, as well as advanced swimming drills that enable them to become efficient swimmers. This class is taught in deep water. Participants must have the teacher's recommendation to enroll. Some course goals include learning to flutter kick front and back, in proper streamline position, for 30 yards; dolphin kick, tread water 1 minute, front dive, freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke swim for 30 yards.
 
ADVANCED LEVEL
Separate groups for ages 5-8, 9-14
All competitive strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly) are refined in our advanced class. With a focus on flip-turns and swimming for greater distances, the advanced student becomes an accomplished swimmer.

SWIM TEAM PREPARATION
New class for ages 9 years old and up
Highest level class which provides a team-like training atmosphere for swimmers who want to practice often. Swimmers gain quality endurance training and improve fitness level. They will refine stroke techniques and learn competitive skills such as pace-clock orientation. This class will prepare the swimmer to join any swim team and become a stronger, faster swimmer.
