The parent/toddler class is designed for children and their guardians to take the class together. The ideal age range for the children is 6 months to 3 years old. The class will go over child safety around the pool as well as teach parents techniques to encourage children to be more comfortable in the water.
The beginner class is designed for children between ages 3 - 5. A child can usually start the beginner class as soon as they are old enough to participate in a class setting without needing a parent nearby. This class will go over the basics of water comfort, breath control, floating, gliding, kicking, and coordinated swimming movements on front and back.
The intermediate class is designed for children who can swim with a crude front crawl for about 5 yards. This class will refine the student’s front crawl with special emphasis on rhythmic breathing and then branch out into other swimming strokes; back crawl, elementary backstroke and breaststroke.
