Waterbabies Level 1
We offer Water Babies Level I Classes in our Hydro Pool for babies ages 2.5 months to 11 months. The Hydro-Pool is a smaller environment with the water temperature at 94 degrees. These are small individualized classes of only 4 babies and 4 parents in the water. We work with you and your child for at least 2 cycles. The price is a group price and not a Babies Class price. We require commitment for two billing cycles.
Waterbabies Level 2
The class will help your child gain the basic skills needed to successfully participate in the more independent learning environment of our private lessons program. Babies are gently introduced to floating skills, breath control, submersion, and whole body movement through the water. Parents will learn the proper techniques for working with their baby in the water, leading to the comfort level of the baby and enhancing the learning process. If not already enrolled in Waterbabies Level 2 before 20 months of age, your child will be enrolled in private lessons. (Ages 10 months to 2.5 years)
Private lessons with your child enable us to adapt to your child’s age, ability, and personality on all levels, assuring the maximum progress possible. Lessons can be either 15 or 30 minutes long. (Ages 18 months and up)
With a two-to-one ratio, your children will have a blast in these lessons. Students are grouped by age and ability with a good comfort level of the water. For eligibility, your child must be swimming independently and rolling over to get a breath of air successfully. All lessons are 30 minutes long. Teacher approval required. (Ages 3.5 years and up)
In group lessons, your child will be with three to four other swimmers and one instructor. Group lessons allow you to maintain a high quality learning experience at a lower cost. Group lessons are offered to students who have been with the program for at least one cycle. Students must be confident, independent swimmers and have teacher approval for enrollment. (Ages 4 and up)
Swim Teams meet once a week. We participate in novice swim meets during the summer. Swim meets are lots of fun and provide your child the experience of swimming in different pools. The swim team is designed to be a smooth progression from group lessons. Children will be swimming full lengths of the pool building strength and endurance in swimming while practicing all four competitive strokes. Teacher approval required for registration on the team.
30 minute lessons ranging from basic competency and comfort in the water to stroke technique and competitive swimming strategies. Instruction is tailored to your needs and goals.
Lessons at Home
Our teachers come to your home year-round. Pool must be privately owned and at least 86 degrees. One hour minimum required. (All Ages)
