Children's Lesson Information


(6 months—2.5 years) Parent participation required. A class of interactive water play to encourage a positive experience in the water while learning basic skills for swimming. As a parent participation class, the ratio is 12:1.


(2.5 – 4 years) No parent participation. The child may or may not have prior swimming experience. Our instructors work with your child to increase comfort level in the water. We introduce the basics of Front Crawl and Elementary Backstroke.


Students who have passed Swim Tots or have little swimming ability, but are comfortable in the water. Comfort and confidence are emphasized. We work on Front Crawl, Backstroke, floating and dives in this level.

Students who have passed Level 1 or are able to swim 15 yards Front Crawl and Backstroke unassisted. We emphasize endurance while still teaching technique in this level.

This class is designed for older children who wish to learn the basics of swimming. Participants may or may not have prior experience in the water. The class will be centered on becoming comfortable in the water and learning the fundamental swimming skills for Front Crawl, Backstroke and Breaststroke.


7 years and up. | Swimmers must be able to swim 50 yards for all competitive strokes using flip turns and speed turns. This is a 1 hour workout in which pace and sports conditioning are introduced. This is not a “learn to swim” class.

We also offer multiple levels simultaneously, great for getting siblings in and out of the pool quick. Although, we can’t always promise they’ll want to leave!
