Intro to Swim Lessons:                                        

Each class is limited to 8.  Ages 6 mos. – 3 yrs. of age.  A parent is in the water with the child.

Water Discovery – A       This class introduces infants and toddlers to the aquatic environment.

Water Discovery – B       This class focuses on exploring body positions, blowing bubbles, fundamental safety.  Recommended for ages 1-3.


Safety Around the Water – Drowning Prevention:         

Each class is limited to 6.  Ages 3 years & up.

A large percentage of children drown within 6-10 feet of safety.  Most of these drownings happen because of a lack of basic water safety knowledge and skills.  If children possess even the most basic swimming skills, their risk of drowning decreases substantially.  Learning basic skills outlined in these lesson plans builds a sense of accomplishment in children and helps prevent drownings.
