(Beg. Age 3) Starting at 3 years of age. This is for a child who is mature enough to enter the water alone and follow important safety instructions.

This is a beginner course where your child will learn to float, blow bubbles and kick their legs on front and back.
(Beg. Age 4) Starting at 4 years old. This if for a child who is mature enough to enter the water alone and follow directions. Level 1B is for a child who feels comfortable in the water, can put their face under water but needs to start learning how to swim. They will learn to float on the their front and back. The will learn how to glide by themselves, and feel comfortable being in the water.
Ages 4 and older. In this level your child will learn how to swim under water, start learning the front and back crawl, and jump into the water without help. Most children will take multiple lessons at this session.
Ages 4 and older. To be in level 3 your child must be able to swim from one end of the pool to the other without stopping and without a floatation device. This will be tested in the first class. Your child will improve their front and back crawl, learn the breast stroke, retrieve objects from the bottom of the pool, and tread water.
In this level your child will perfect rotary breathing, treading water, front crawl, back crawl, and breast stroke. They will learn the butterfly, flip turns, and the side stroke.

Adaptive Swimming is a parent and child class tailored to the needs of children living with various intellectual and behavioral disorders. The primary goal of this class will focus on water safety, in addition to enhancing swimming ability. The course will be taught with principles derived from Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and families are welcome to bring visuals and incentives that work for their child to aid in their learning process. This class is geared to ages 10 and under.
