Swim STARTERS (Parent & Child)

Swim Level A & B  |  Accompanied by a parent, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun and confidence-building experiences, while parents learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision. 

Swim Basics

Level 1-3  |  Students learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills:

  • Swim, float, swim
  • Jump, push, turn, grab
  • These skills will make your child safe to swim short distances and climb out of the water

Swim strokes

Level 4-6  |  Having mastered the fundamentals, students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, developing skills that improve health and well-being and prepare them for a lifetime of physical fitness and swim team.

*Levels 4-6 require evaluation with a passing certificate to register at the front desk.
