• Swim Lessons Are Back For Summer 2021


    Parent/Child

    Introduces parents and child to water. Parents will safely work with their child in the water, learning to support and hold their child in the water and encourage their child to participate in new skills. All non-potty-trained children will be required to wear a tight-fitting swim diaper.

    Level 1

    Participants who have had very little or no swim instruction. Child must be able to follow directions and hold side of pool without parental assistance while instructor is working with other children.

    Level 2

    The participant must be able to comfortably put their face in the water and blow bubbles, jump in without assistance, paddle on the front, and float on back (with ears in water). Class will introduce aquatic locomotion skills, simultaneous and alternating arm/leg action on front and back, and to continue to advance and build on the basic skills that the child will continue to build on as they progress to next level.

    Level 3

    This is an intermediate-advanced level class. The goal of class is to develop participants' confidence in the strokes learned thus far and to improve other aquatic skills. Focus will be on increasing endurance by swimming familiar strokes (front crawl, elementary backstroke), and adding sidestroke, back crawl, breaststroke, butterfly, and basics of turning at the wall. Must be able to complete 50-yard swim and 30-second tread to be in level 3.
