Class Descriptions for Swim Lessons

Parent-Tot Lessons: Water Discovery and Exploration
Introduces infants and toddlers to the aquatic environment and focuses on exploring body positions, blowing bubbles, and fundamental safety and aquatic skills.
Why Float for Life? Purpose: Saftey First Classes are designed to teach children how to breathe, in water, by rolling over to their back and floating. This lifesaving technique can give each child those few extra seconds that could save their life.
Children will learn safety skills that can be used throughout life. They will learn to float, swim to the side of the pool and move in and out of water comfortably.
This class should not replace regular swimming lessons. Instead, it will enhance your child’s abilily to be safe in a “this could never happen to me” situation.
