 NEW for 2018

Private Swim Lessons-Private lessons are NEW this summer are offered on Fridays from 11:00am-11:25am for four consecutive weeks. Any level, ages 3 and older, may register for private lessons. The instructor and participant, or guardian, will discuss desired skills and custom tailor the lesson to the individual. Private lessons are $75 for four lessons. Family discount of 50% for each additional child. Skill level must be similar as this discount is applied to students that have the same/ shared instructor. New classes started each Friday of the summer (pending instructor availability).

Adaptive Swim Lessons- These lessons are designed specifically for students that have trouble learning in a group environment due to physical and developmental challenges. Lessons will focus on water comfort and skills to become “water safe”. To participate in these lessons interested parents should download the application and additional materials HERE  (NOT AVAILABLE FOR SESSION 1)

How can you help as a parent? 
You play an essential role in your child’s aquatic experience. Your enthusiasm and guidance can make your child’s swim lessons fun and rewarding. 
    -Support your child by praising his or her effort in the pool. 
    -Bring a healthy snack and drink for your child for after the lesson to replace fluids and energy. 
    -Understand that children develop swimming skills at different rates. Remember, many children need to repeat a level multiple times to complete all of the skills. 
    -Ask the instructor which skills your child should review, and then make practicing at home or the pool fun! 

How can you build on your child’s swimming experience? 
    -Give your child plenty of opportunities to develop strength, practice skills, and increase his or her comfort level in the water by taking them to a local or family pool. 
    -Stay interested in your child’s progress. Ask your child to show you a skill learned in swim lessons and incorporate the skill into a game to play in the pool. 

Remember: It is not important how quickly they move through a level, but that they acquire each skill. 

Please read the registration information and course descriptions carefully. Every effort should be made to enroll your child into the appropriate class based on their skill level. If enrollment is made into a class that is not at the child's ability, the Aquatic Office cannot guarantee that space in another class will be available.
