What level should I put my swimmer in?

Based strictly off of a child’s age, we recommend the following:

  • Six months to three years old should attend a parent-child lesson with a parent in the water.
  • Three to six years old should attend a preschool lesson.
  • Six years old and older should attend a Learn to Swim lesson.
  • We recommend anyone over the age of sixteen to enroll in our private lesson program.

What is the difference between Parent/Child, Preschool, and Learn-to-Swim Level 1??

  • Parent/Child classes encourage the parent and swimmer to learn together to increase the child’s comfort level in the water.  They will build a foundation of basic skills, such as arm and leg movements and breath control while learning to play around the water safely.
  • Preschool Aquatics classes are geared for children ages 4-5.  They will be oriented to the aquatic environment and learn basic aquatic skills while being supported hands-on by the instructor.  This level would be perfect for kids who have never taken lessons before, or are being introduced to swimming for the first time, but show comfort being in the water without a parent.
  • Learn to Swim Level 1 swimmers starting at age 6 learn basic aquatic skills while being encouraged to develop positive attitudes and safe practices around the water.  Instructors will help swimmers gain independence in the water and provide hands-on support when needed.  This level would be perfect for kids who have passed the Preschool Aquatics level, or are at kindergarten age where they can stand on their own in the shallow end.
