Learn to Swim Class Descriptions (Levels):
Tadpoles: ages 9 months - 4 years
Children work with their parent on the basic skills, moving on their front and back, working towards independence from the parent to working with one of our instructors in a structured class. Please note: One parent per child is required in the class.
Goldfish: ages 4-6
Working with our instructors and aides children will begin to learn the basics to swimming. Skills such as independent front and back floats and introduction to the front and back crawl will be covered. When the child can move independently for 5 yards, they will be on their way to becoming a Sea Otter.
Sea Otter: ages 5-8
Sea Otter classes become completely independent from the instructor while swimming on their front and back. When they become capable of performing a functional front and back crawl independently, they are ready to become a Sting Ray.
Sting Ray: ages 6 & up
Now the swimmers are able to use the skills learned in the Sting Ray class and refine front and back crawl. A focus on bi-lateral breathing and treading water is also introduced.
Dolphin: ages 6 & up
Swimmers learn and refine the front and back crawl further lengths of the pool. Also, elementary backstroke, butterfly, and breaststroke are also a focus.
Sharks: ages 8 & up
Swimmers refine all 6 of the strokes, learn how to do flip turns, and increase endurance.
Blue Whales: ages 8 & up
This class will continue to work on the strokes along with endurance. There is also instruction on how swimming relates to fitness and utilizing the skill of swimming for life.
Water Sports - ages 8 & up
Open your child's aquatic experience with our new water sports class! This class will encourage your child to use their swimming skills in an environment that includes teamwork and fun. With the combination of basketball and soccer in the water, this class introduces the concept of Water Polo designed and structured as a NO CONTACT game. This will allow your child to experience a new sport and use their swimming skills all at the same time. Rules have been modified to allow your child to develop their ball handling skills, games concepts, swimming and teamwork.
For private lessons, please inquire with Camp Director.
