Group Lessons 



Get Wet

6 mo–3 years

Get Wet is a parent and child class for children three years of age and younger

(exceptions are made for older children).

While focusing  on water comfort, games, and relaxing in a warm water environment, parents are encouraged to challenge each child's skills and level of comfort in the water. Continually under the guidance of a competent instructor, the emphasis in Get Wet is on fun in the water! 

As young children in Get Wet, swimmers will experience and understand the buoyancy and balance and breath control that will help them throughout the rest of the Learn To Swim Program.

Pre-Beginner I

3-4 years

Pre-Beginner is our first class without parental involvement.

Children must have reached the age of three to enroll in this level. At this age we feel that children will benefit from the dynamics of a small group and a caring , competent instructor. Children will be asked to challenge themselves by trying new things.

The emphasis in Pre-Beginner is on basic water skills such as assisted and unassisted floating, blowing bubbles and retrieving items from the bottom of a shallow (3 foot) area. Listening to instructions and working within a group are stressed along with important water safety lessons. Pre-Beginner includes activities that build confidence while increasing the child’s comfort and feel for the water. Finally, children will become comfortable swimming under the water.

Pre-Beginner has two age divisions; the skills covered in the two divisions are identical.
