Private Lessons

Monday-Friday: 10:15-10:45am, or 11:00-11:30am

Cost: $30 per half-hour

Swim Levels:

Parent/Child

In the parent/child class, parents will learn basic water safety skills and proper holding techniques to adjust their infants to the pool in an environment that encourages social interaction and fun. Infants learn water entry/exit and develop swimming skills such as blowing bubbles, water submersion, kicking, and floating.

Tiny Tots

This class is designed for children who are almost capable of swimming without their parents, but are still adjusting to an aquatic environment. This class will focus on face submersion, lengthening lung capacity, and mastering the front and back float. This may be the child's first time in swim lessons.

Level 1

Level 1 focuses largely on the child's body position in the water. These swimmers are comfortable in the water and they can do a front and back float with some assistance. Consistent breathing, lengthening lung capacity, and learning how to propel themselves in the water will be the focus of this class.

Level 2

This swimmer can do a front and back float unassisted. They will learn to jump from the deck and swim to the wall. Eventually this swimmer will learn to roll from their back to front while swimming. Level 2 focuses on fostering independence in the water, improving propulsion, and rolling back to front in the water while maintaining correct body position.

Level 3

Level 3 focuses on independence, endurance and technique. Building on skills learned in Level 2, students will do longer distance swims while rolling back to front, front to back. At this level, we introduce bilateral breathing (front crawl), treading water, breast stroke basics, and dolphin kick. These swimmers will independently surface dive for rings at 5ft +.

Level 4

At Level 4, the swimmer will perfect their front and back streamlines and begin freestyle (front crawl) stroke development. Bilateral breathing, body rotation and standing diving skills are focused on during these lessons.

Level 5

In addition to building on the skills learned in Level 4, this class teaches more in depth the mechanics of the breast stroke and butterfly.
