Classes are 30 minutes long and have a student-teacher ratio of 10:1.

Pre-School Lessons
Ages 3 to 5 years; no parent participation. Your children will advance through the following three levels as their skills progress:

Starfish
Children start developing good attitudes and safe practices around the water. Children will start to learn the most elementary aquatic skills, which they’ll continue to build on as they progress through the other levels.

Seahorse
Lessons builds on the basic aquatic skills learned in Starfish, and give children further success with fundamental aquatic skills performed to a slightly more advanced degree. This level marks the beginning of independent aquatic locomotion skills.

Frog
The objective is to build on the skills previously learned by providing additional guided practice of basic aquatic skills, at slightly more proficient performance levels and greater distances. Skills in this level are performed independently.

Children’s Swim Lessons
Our Children’s Swim Lessons program are designed to meet the needs of children ages 6-15 with a wide range of abilities, from initial water adjustment to advanced skills and techniques.

Guppy
The objective is for children to learn basic personal water safety information and skills, while helping them feel comfortable in the water. Children will learn positive attitudes, good swimming habits, and safe practices in and around the water at this level.

Sea Turtle
Children further develop simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back, laying the foundation for future strokes.

Angelfish
Your child works on coordinating the front and back crawl, along with survival floating. Scissors and dolphin kicks, along with the fundamentals of treading water, are introduced.

Seal
The focus is on improving swimming skills and increasing endurance. This level continues to build on the sidestroke and introduces the breaststroke and butterfly, along with the basics of turning at a wall.

Dolphin
Performance and refinement of all the strokes are emphasized with a focus on increasing distances. Flip turns are also introduced.

Shark
Students refine their strokes and learn to swim with more ease, proficiency, power, and smoothness over greater distances.
