Melinda Lyons

Melinda Lyons instructs the following:
  • Level II
  • Free from the need for floatation aid, this class is designed for swimmers comfortable on their front and back and who are ready to swim short distances. Work will begin on simultaneous leg and arm movement with emphasis placed on proper body position; to prepare for further stroke development. In addition participants will begin work on front crawl and elementary backstroke, while continuing to improve breathing technique.

  • Water Babies
  • Help your baby (ages 6 months - 1 year) develop a sense of comfort in the water and set the stage for a successful transition in learning to swim. Join us for this fun and enjoyable class to get your little swimmer off to a great start!

  • Level I Advanced
  • This class emphasizes increasing your endurance and confidence in the water. Starting out with some use of flotation devices, our talented instructors will gradually help swimmers gain the ability to swim without aid. Participants will also learn breathing techniques, fully submerging, and floating independently on their front and back. Small class sizes ensure your little swimmer gets off to a great start!

  • Level I Beginner
  • Designed for the beginner swimmer, this class emphasizes increasing your child’s confidence and ease while in the water. Starting out with the aid of a flotation device, children will work on kicking and the beginner techniques of swimming. This is a great class for children who are not timid in the water but use flotation.

  • Nursery Swim
  • First time swimmers or children who are timid in the water will become more comfortable and safe as they learn basic kicking, arm strokes and submerging their faces. Safety rules, glides, freestyle arm stroke, backstroke and supported floating will be covered in this class.

  • Montessori Swim Lessons

  • Tots in Training
  • Tots in training is a unique swim class designed to ease toddlers into a nursery level swim class. Parents begin this program in the water with their children, and over the course of the session, start to stay outside of the pool, as their child becomes more confident swimming with an instructor. This class is great for swimmers who are unsure of being by themselves in the water with an instructor, but have the skills to engage in a nursery level class.

  • Level IV
  • Designed for swimmers who are comfortable swimming multiple lengths of the pool, this class works to refine strokes learned thus far while beginning to develop endurance. Participants will also be introduced to the breaststroke, sidestroke, and butterfly.
