Class Descriptions

[25 Minutes per Class]

This class is geared toward toddlers (six months to three years of age) to gain confidence in the water by having a one on one experience with a trusted adult’s assistance. Working with an instructor, the adult is in the water with the toddler to help introduce the child to the aquatic environment. Water adjustment and basic swimming skills will be emphasized.

[25 Minutes per Class]

Aqua Tots will enable preschool aged children to explore an aquatic environment and prepare for progressive levels. They will be introduced to combined skills for beginner swim strokes, beginning breathing skills and safety skills.

Youth, ages five & up, have the opportunity to gain knowledge and swimming skills in a safe and enjoyable aquatic environment. Youth lessons are divided into groups based on skill acquisition.
