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!
Toddlers (ages 1 year - 2 years) learn swim skills in the secure arms of their parent. Signing activities and games make it funas they blow bubbles, kick and float. Determination will improve with the ability to separate from parent.
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.
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.
