Summary of the classes:

Water Discovery/ Exploration- This class is designed for children 6months- 2 years with an adult in the water. This class requires one parent to be in the water. This allows for parents to bond with their child while teaching them a new skill, to witness their growth firsthand, and to learn ways to help infants acclimate to the water.

Level 1: Water Acclimation- This class allows for children to acclimate to the water.  It is theperfect starting point for any child with fear or hesitation near water. This class is meant for beginners and will help them feel more comfortable in the water and teach them the basics of learning how to swim. We recommend this to anyone new to swim lessons.

Level 2: Water Movement- This class teaches children how to start moving throughout the water and become more comfortable with it. This class is for kids who already know some basic swimming skills but need practice perfecting them. This class is also for children who are gaining the self confidence needed to swim without assistance.

Level 3:Water Stamina- This class is for kids that can swim on their own some but need practice to build up their endurance for swimming longer distances. In this class, kids already are comfortable putting their face in the water and swimming some distance without assistance.

Level 4: Stroke Introduction- This class is for kids who can swim at least 25yds (the length of the pool) without assistance. The child should be able to swim confidently on their own with some rotary breathing and be able to demonstrate front and back stroke. In this class, children will learn the basics of all six strokes.

Level 5: Stroke Development– This class is for kids who can swim at least 50yds and has knowledge of all six strokes. In this class kids will work on developing the strokes they have a basic idea on. It will focus on giving a more in-depth training on each stroke and developing endurance to increase distance for each one.

Level 6: Stroke Mechanics- This class is for kids who are ready for swim team level and want extra practice. We will focus on specific techniques and drills to improve their strokes.
