Aquatics Swim Lessons Program

 

Swim Lessons


Mommy & Me:
*(Newborn – 3 Years)
This is an introduction to the aquatic environment for parents and their infants. Parents are encouraged to develop appropriate expectations for their children’s performance in the water. They learn basic aquatic safety and have a positive experience with their children that can help them grow closer.

Tadpoles:
*(3 years – 5 years)
At this level, children usually begin attending classes without their parents. This level helps children develop safe pool behavior, adjust to the water, and develop independent movement in the water. It is designed for new swimmers, teaching basic paddle stroke and kicking skills, pool safety, and comfort in holding their faces in the water while blowing bubbles and swimming.

Minnow:
*(5 Years – 7 Years)
This advanced beginner level reinforces Tadpole skills. It is for children who are comfortable in the water. They are taught to flutter kick, dive, float, and perform the progressive paddle stroke. Children can swim 15 feet without assistance by the end of this level.

Guppy:
*(7 Years- 9 Years)
At this level children review previous skills, improve stroke skills, build endurance by swimming on their front and back, and learn to tread water and perform more progressive diving skills. Children can swim 20 feet on their front, side and back without assistance by the end of this level.

Stingray:
At this advanced level, students work on refining their strokes and increasing their endurance. They develop the ability to perform more complex combinations of synchronized swimming movements; learn to dive off a one-meter board. The students at this level continue to improve their strokes, with starts and turns, and are introduced to the inverted breaststroke, the crawl, and the over arm sidestroke.
