We are a American Red Cross Learn to Swim Facility
Parent & Child  Ages 6mo - 2 years old   (30 minute lessons)

   -  This course will help young children become comfortable in, on and around the water so that when the time comes, they are ready to learn how to swim. The instructor will follow a plan to introduce new swimming and water safety skills that are developmentally appropriate and engaging for infants and young children.  It is important to understand that Parent and Child Aquatics is not designed to teach children to become good swimmers or  even to survive in the water on their own.  This class introduces you and your child to basic skills.  As parents, you learn how to safely work with your child in the water, including how to appropriately support and hold your child in the water and how to prepare and encourage your child to participate fully and try the skills.  In addition, you are introduced to several water safety topics.  Your child receives an introduction to basic skills that lay a foundation for learning to swim.  An adult (it could be a parent, guardian or caregiver) is required to accompany each child in the water and participate in every class.  The adult participants learn too!  

Preschool  Ages 3 years old - 5 Years old  (30 minute lessons)

-   For each level of Preschool Aquatics, our instructors follow a plan to introduce new swimming and water safety skills that are developmentally appropriate for young children.  Preschool Aquatics puts the "fun" in fundamentals.  Each class is loaded with enjoyable, engaging and challenging activities that motivate children to want to perform and learn to swim. 

-   Preschool Aquatics Level 1, your child is introduced to basic skills.  These skills lay the foundation for developing water competency and the future skill development of swimming strokes.  In addition, your child starts to develop positive attitudes and safe practices around the water. 

-   Preschool Aquatics Level 2,  your child continues to lay the foundation for developing water competency and further skill development.  This level marks the beginning of independent aquatic locomotion skills.  Children continue to explore using simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back to gain greater proficiency in preparation for performing strokes. 

-   Preschool Aquatics Level 3 is for young children who are more independent in the water.  New swimming skills and water safety skills are introduced to further the child's  development of water competency preparing them for learn to swim classes. 

Learn to Swim   Ages 5 years old and up   (45 minute lessons)

-   For every level of Learn-to-Swim, our instructors follow a plan to introduce new swimming and water safety skills and build on previously learned skills.  Each class is loaded with fun, engaging and challenging activates that motivate children to want to perform and learn to swim.  It is common for children to participate in several sessions of a level before they successfully demonstrate each skill.  That is okay!  It is not important how quickly they move through a level, but that they acquire each skill. 

-   Level 1 - Introduction to Water Skills, your child is introduced to basic skills as the foundation for future skills and the development of water competency (the basic minimum skills needed for water safety).

-   Level 2 - Fundamental Aquatic Skills builds on skills learned in Level 1.  Your child begins to perform skills at a slightly more advanced level and begins gaining rudimentary propulsive skills on both the front and the back.  This level marks the beginning of independent aquatic locomotion skills. 

-   Level 3 - Stroke Development builds on skills learned in previous levels.  Your child learns to swim the front crawl and elementary backstroke at rudimentary levels, is introduced to the scissors and dolphin kicks, learns the survival float and increases the time duration for treading water.  Your child also learns the rules for headfirst entries and begins to learn to enter the water headfirst from a seated position at the poolside in 9 feet deep water or deeper. 

-   Level 4 - Stroke Improvement works on improving the swimming stroke proficiency and swimming for longer distances. 

-   Level 5 - Stroke Refinement, the instructor follows a plan to refine all six swimming strokes including swimming for longer distances.  The expectations are higher in regards to distance and quality. 

-   Level 6 - This level is split into two sections that the participant can pick from; Personal Water Safety or Fitness Swimmer.
