Parent/Caregiver Classes
 

Introduce your child to the fun world of swimming in our warm-water pool. Our classes use songs and games to teach water-based motor skills such as breath control, kicking, and floating. Children will acquire good swimming habits and a lifelong love for the water.

Join us in the pool for our first infant swim class, Bubbling Babies, as early as six months. Our experienced instructors make swimming fun and educational for both parents and children. We teach and uphold a strong sense of safety standards, both in and out of the pool.

  • NEW! Dolphins 1 - Beginner 2.5-3.5 (drop-off class)

    Our first drop-off class is for beginner swimmers and takes place in the training pool without a parent/caregiver in the water. This class will introduce your child to water safety, breath control, back floating, independent water entry and exit, as well as following direction in a group setting amidst peers. Your little dolphin will learn to feel safe and confident in the water on their own.

  • NEW! Dolphins 2 - Intermediate 3–5 Years (drop–off class)

    Our Dolphins 2 Intermediate class builds on the skills presented in our Dolphins 1 Beginner class. This class focuses on water safety, breathing, basics of freestyle, backstroke, treading, and floating without help.

  • NEW! Dolphins 3 - Advance 3–5 Years (drop–off class)

    Our Dolphins 3 Advanced class is the last stop for drop-off group swim in the training pool! This class focuses on water safety and increasing confidence in skill to take your swimmer to the next level. Dolphins 3 will introduce advanced skills such as side breathing, freestyle and backstroke.

  • Bubbling Babies (6-12 months):  Enjoy an introduction to the water in this class full of songs and games. Classes will focus on comfort, breath control, verbal swim cues, skill demonstrations, and safety in and out of the water.

  • Starfish (12-18 months):  Through games, songs, and basic swim movements, this parent/child class helps children discover how to move themselves into, out of, and around the water.

  • Sea Horses (18-30 months):  In this parent/child class, toddlers will learn primary water skills including submersions with kicks, back floats, rollover breathing and water play.

  • Little Fish (30-36 months):  Students will be encouraged to work with their parent/caregiver while also working on becoming more of an independent swimmer. Through activities and songs, each child will continue to learn how to be safe and more self-confident in the water.
