• Summer 2024 Swim Lessons


    Parent/Child (in the Warm Pool)

    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 (in Both Pools)

    Participants who have had very little or no swim instruction. The child must be able to follow directions and hold the side of the pool without parental assistance while the instructor is working with other children. THE LEVEL 1 AM SESSIONS WILL SPEND TIME IN THE MAIN POOL. 

    Level 2 (in the Main Pool)

    The participant must be able to comfortably put their face in the water and blow bubbles, jump in without assistance, and float on their back (with ears in water). The 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 the next level.

    Level 3 (in the Main Pool)

    This is an intermediate-advanced level class. The goal of the class is to develop participants' confidence in the strokes learned thus far and to improve other aquatic skills. The 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. Swimmers must be able to complete a 50-yard swim and 30-second tread to be in Level 3.
