Event Description

2017 Spring Youth Swimming Instruction

Beginner through Advanced level swimmers. Each class period will include all ability groups. Each class will be divided into small groups (5-8 students) based on their ability from the information shown on the registration form and through evaluation at the first class.

Students are assigned to a teaching station using the information shown on your registration form and by a water evaluation done during the first class. Our goal is to provide a small group teaching and learning environment to allow maximum skill development for each individual student.

Classes run Monday through Friday for two weeks.

Water safety and swim skills

We emphasize learning proper body position, buoyancy and body alignment to allow the student to be comfortable in the water. Much of their early work is done with the student working while on their back.

As the student is learning and accepting these concepts we begin to explore other swimming skills through fun activities and movement exploration in the water.

Our instructors are encouraged to use a variety of equipment and approaches to make the learning fun and effective for each student.

IMPORTANT NOTE: These lessons require that 4 and 5 year olds must be able to work in group lessons (taking turns, following directions, etc.) and should be comfortable performing basic skills such as reaching/pulling and kicking when asked. We reserve the right to refer a student to another class or ask for them to withdraw from a class if needed.

Refunds: There is a $10 non-refundable fee for any cancellation prior to the first class. After classes begin an up to the third class, 50% of the fee will be refunded. No refunds after the third class meeting.
